Farwell Elementary Principal: Man Tries To Lure Student

LETTER FROM THE PRINCIPAL:

KHQ.COM - On Wednesday Farwell Elementary received a report that a man in a car approached a student as she was walking home from her bus stop. He followed her in his car and stopped and watched her walk to the neighbor's house and then home.

This occurred in the Shady Slope area. From the initial report the school and district have been working with our school resource officers and local law enforcement to increase patrols in our area. Please know that we are taking this situation very seriously and the students' safety is our primary concern.

This is a good time to stress and remind students the importance of having students always walk to and from school or bus stops with a friend or fellow student, especially as the days grow shorter and darker this fall. It is also important for parents to discuss what to do if their students encounter a stranger who approaches them.

Students should never take rides from strangers, should walk away, and if they feel extremely unsafe should go to a friendly house to ask for assistance. In the event that a student reports being followed or approached by a stranger please call 911 immediately.

After talking with the police, then call the school to keep us updated. We appreciate your help as we all work together to keep our students safe.

Mountainside Middle School Principal
