Dear Parents/Guardians:

In our continuing effort to keep our school community safe and informed, we have some safety information to share with our families.  

The District was informed of an incident that involved a stranger in a vehicle during the time our students were walking to school.  The stranger was said to have slowed his vehicle next to a walking student before attempting to verbally engage with the student. The student made the correct choice by walking away and notifying an adult. The Hamilton Township Police Department provided a description of the stranger as a, “black male with a mustache driving a light green, four-door sedan.”

Our Hamilton Township Police Division is investigating the incident and encourages you to take a moment to talk with your children about their safety. Please use this incident as an opportunity to explain to your child/children the importance of being aware of their surroundings when walking to and from school.  Stress the importance of walking in pairs, staying off electronic devices until in a safe space, and immediately reporting suspicious activity to school personnel or the police department.  Please remind your child/children to focus on these safety measures no matter what school they attend or how they arrive at school.
