I want to make you aware of a situation that happened in our school area yesterday morning. One of our students reported a suspicious vehicle following them. The student reported that the passenger exited the vehicle and chased them. The student was not contacted by the person, and was able to get help from our crossing guard.
The police have shared that there were two suspects – a driver and passenger – that were dressed in black, wearing winter masks over their faces, and that they were driving in a red/maroon van. Police have asked that anyone with information please call police at 519-570-9777 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
We would like to stress that the student who made this report is safe and did the right thing in walking away from the unknown person, getting help and making a report. We encourage you to remind your child(ren) to not speak with strangers and to report anything or anyone that seems suspicious.
We always take every necessary precaution to ensure the safety of our students and staff, and are working with police. As always, please call me at the school at 519-622-0611 if you have any questions or concerns.
