Brighton school district leaders are urging parents to remind their kids not to talk to strangers after they say a student was approached.
According to the district, the student was approached and offered a ride by a stranger. The district says the student said “no” and reported it to police.
In a Facebook post, the superintendent writes, “We are not informing you of this incident to cause you any undue concern. However, we thought it was important to let you know about this situation so that you might remind your children of the lessons you have taught them around not talking to strangers and only interacting with trusted adults. Your continued diligence in monitoring your children’s bus stops or walking routes is appreciated.”
The district says they have alerted bus drivers to be on the watch. They are also working with police. They are asking anyone who sees anything suspicious to call officers.
