A friend of mine with a 6th grader told me that her daughter and a 13-year-old girl also from CCMS were walking together away from CCMS Tuesday Jan. 24 in the afternoon when a man in a black car pulled up and asked them if they’d like some chocolate. He attempted to get their attention near the crossing guard station. The girls fortunately ignored him and called my friend. The police were called, but as the girls did not have many details of his physical description, beyond his being African American, and there was little to go on.
Please review safety procedures with your school-age kids, and try to have them walk to and from school with a buddy/buddies.
