Student Safety Alert

Parents, Families, and Community Members,

Earlier this month, we let you know about some concerning incidents where a suspicious vehicle approached students who were walking in the Twelve Corners area. We wanted to inform you that a Twelve Corners Middle School student was approached in that area when walking to school today. The man driving the vehicle reportedly made highly offensive, inappropriate, and potentially dangerous remarks to the student. The car drove away and the student’s family reported the incident to the Brighton Police Department. The man was driving a gray sedan, which Police say matches the description from previous incidents.

Twelve Corners Middle School and Brighton High School students will be receiving reminders in school about what to do if they are approached by strangers. We also 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 immediately to the Police. Thank you for everything you do to keep your children safe.

Have a great, safe evening.

Kevin McGowan, Ed.D.
Superintendent
