This is published here to let everyone know and so we can be alert for this particular individual. A good opportunity to speak with your children about the danger of speaking with strangers.

The North Beach e-mail:
IMPORTANT: We have had two incidents of stranger danger the past few weeks so we need you to be informed and talk to your children about stranger danger protocols.
Last week, one of our student’s grandmothers was walking up on 24th and saw a man urinating in the bushes at the bottom of the north stairs by the portables. Today we had a man coming up the stairs as a child was returning from the bathroom. As soon as he saw her, he ran. One of the 5th grade teachers and I searched the area, and our district security officer followed up by casing the area in both instances. We could not find anyone by the description given to us.
Staff has been alerted to the stranger, I have requested that Safety and Security look at installing a gate, and we will talk with students regarding stranger danger. We are requiring all children from the portables go to bathroom in pairs. We are on high alert and will take all precautions necessary.
