The following message is from Ms. Hollings, Principal of Calhoun HS:

 

Dear Parents:

I am very sad to report another case of a stranger approaching one of our students....

A female student walking on St. John Ave. was approached by a white car, possibly a Honda, with a possible partial plate number 7983. The driver, a male of light brown complexion in his 20s drove up slowly behind her and then stopped asking, "Do you need a ride?" Before the student could respond in any way, the car sped off. The incident was reported to the police. We have asked the police to increase patrols in the neighborhood. 

Please urge your students to not walk alone, to continue to be aware of their surroundings, and be ready with a phone to snap a picture and call the police. 

Ms. Hollings
