Hi All:

 

I want to give you a heads up on a “stranger danger” incident that was brought to our attention this morning.

 

A few hours ago, a student reported that yesterday afternoon, while walking home after school heading south on Oakwood Road, she was approached by a younger white male adult in a red sedan style car.  The student further reported that the man made repeated attempts to invite her into the car and followed for several minutes, as she ignored his requests and continued to walk.  The Stimson student did not enter the car and there was no further contact during the remainder of the walk.  The Stimson student’s mom came to school today to report the incident, and we have contacted the police and are taking steps to notify the community.

 

Please take the time to speak with your children regarding the importance of “stranger danger awareness” and vigilance in their travels.  Also, please reinforce the importance of immediately reporting incidents to both school and law enforcement authorities.

 

Thanks you

 

Dr. Bennardo
