I just wanted to inform our families that there was a gentleman by the hill and on the path today at recess. At no point was the person on our school yard and the students were safe and fully supervised. Students were worried and thought he may have taken pictures. I approached him to ask some questions and share that we cannot take pictures of students. He did not speak English but I believe he did understand. I called the police and did a report. I did not feel the gentleman was unsafe, but I wanted to follow up to ensure if he was here again, that the police had this information and our concerns about pictures. They are now investigating.
If your son/daughter brings up this information at home, please let them know we followed school protocol and at no time were they unsafe. The students who reported it did exactly the right thing in letting us know so we could follow up immediately.
Thank you for your continued support.
