Important Announcement from the Superintendent of Schools

Friday, October 29, 2010

Dear Parent or Guardian:

On Wednesday after school (October 27, 2010), a student walking from South High School along Main Street near Spindrift Drive was approached by a man driving a gold Trailblazer. He made several verbal attempts to get the student into the vehicle. When the student did not comply, the driver left the scene. The student was not harmed.

The student and her parent reported the incident to the principal and to the Amherst Police who are investigating the incident. The student described the man as a heavy set white male, 50-60+ years old with a white/gray goatee and large round glasses.

I want to alert all parents to this report and ask that you discuss safety habits with your children, especially with Halloween activities occurring this weekend. Call 911 or the Amherst Police Department at 689-1311 if you or your child observes any suspicious individual or activity.


Howard S. Smith, Superintendent of Schools
