Dear Parents and Guardians,

The safety of your children is always our top priority, which is why we must inform you of a situation that was reported at school. Last week, a student reported that he observed a suspicious man at dismissal near the school.  According to the report, the man did not speak to the student, however, the student was concerned that the man might be following him as he left school grounds.  The student was able to find a trusted adult and was not harmed.

The Chicago Police Department is aware of the situation and has been providing us with special attention at dismissal as a precaution.   The CPS Office of Safety and Security has also been contacted.

This is a good reminder to remind your child to go directly to and from school and to walk in groups whenever possible. Please also encourage your child to report any suspicious behavior to the school immediately.

We thank you for your cooperation and invite you to contact the school directly with any questions or concerns.
