Please see the below message from Ms. Poppe, Principal of Kennedy High School:

 

Dear Parents:

Yesterday afternoon, two of our ninth grade students were followed by a white male, 25-30 years old, as they were walking on Merrick Road near The GAP.   The students tried to avoid him by going in and out of stores; however, he continued to follow them.  The police were contacted and a report was filed.  In these situations, we encourage all students to use good judgment when they feel they are in a danger and seek assistance in a safe environment, such as a store or at school. We also encourage all students to walk with a friend.

Ms. Poppe, Principal
