School District Warns Of 2nd Suspicious Incident 11-18-2010

Officials with the Lapeer Community Schools sent home a second letter warning after a suspicious incident took place in Lapeer Township on Nov. 12.
It follows on the heels of another incident that took place Nov. 9 involving a Zemmer Middle School student.
The descriptions for the incidents differ, however. Superintendent Debbie Thompson said the first incident involved a man in a minivan offering a ride to the girl.
Below is the text of the letter sent home last Friday: Dear Parents,
We were made aware late yesterday of a suspicious incident in Lapeer Township that has been reported to the Lapeer County Sheriff’s Department.
A female student was walking in the area of Hunters Creek and Clark roads at about 4:15 p.m. on Friday, November 12, and was approached by a man in a 4-door silver Toyota who asked her if she needed a ride.
The girl declined the ride, and the man left. She later reported the incident to the Sheriff’s Department.
She described the driver as a younger Hispanic man with dark complexion. He was heavy-set and had very short black hair. She also gave the deputy a partial license plate number.
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
