Student Safety Alert

Parents, Families, and Community Members,

We are writing to let you know about some concerning incidents that occurred in our community recently. Three students at Twelve Corners Middle School and Brighton High School were approached on different dates by a suspicious vehicle when walking near the Twelve Corners. In some cases, the vehicle followed the students and in other cases, the driver waved or gestured at the students. The students did not talk with the driver and reported the incidents to the Brighton Police Department.

We are not informing you of these incidents to cause you any undue concern. However, we thought it was important to let you know about these situations so that you might remind your children of the lessons you have taught them around not talking to strangers and only interacting with trusted adults. Your continued diligence in monitoring your children’s bus stops or walking routes is appreciated.

Please let us know if we can do anything more to keep your children safe. We've alerted our bus drivers and will continue to work closely with Brighton Police to monitor this situation. Please report any suspicious behavior to the Police. Thank you for everything you do to keep your children safe.

Have a great, safe evening.

Kevin McGowan, Ed.D.
