School District Warns Of 'Suspicious Incident' 11-09-2010

Lapeer Community School officials sent home a letter with students on Tuesday, warning of an incident that took place near Zemmer Middle School.
The letter describes what Superintendent Debbie Thompson called a suspicious incident involving a man in a minivan offering a ride to a middle school girl.
The letter appears below and will be sent home with elementary and middle school students. It was read out loud to high school students.
November 9, 2010 Dear Parents,
We became aware of a suspicious incident near Zemmer Middle School that was reported to school officials and the Mayfield Township Police Department this morning. A female student was walking on Oregon Road near the east side of school property at Zemmer Middle School at about 8:45 a.m. and was approached by a man in a red minivan who asked her if she needed a ride. The girl reported the incident to school officials, who contacted the police. The man was in his 50s or 60s with gray hair, a pony tail and beard. He was wearing a flannel vest.
We are committed to protecting our students and know that you, as parents, will continue to teach your children how to best protect themselves and seek assistance if necessary. Please reinforce with your children the lessons about interacting with strangers and, of course, immediately notify the police or sheriff’s deputies if you see or hear anything out of the ordinary.
Sincerely, Debbie Thompson Superintendent of Lapeer Community Schools
