We have been informed by a Silas Wood students’ parent that, after exiting the bus yesterday afternoon (on 8th Ave & Lockwood), her daughter was approached by a man in a black truck who said “come here, come with me now.”  The 6th-grade student quickly left the scene and told her mother, who in turn, contacted the school and police.  We will be sending school personnel to that site this afternoon, and will, of course, fully cooperate with law enforcement. 

We are sharing this information so parents have a chance to reinforce the lessons of stranger danger with their children.
