Safety Alert - May 8, 2018

We have been informed of an incident that occurred yesterday {5/7/2018} when a high school student was approached by a stranger after exiting the school bus on Cerny Place and Udall Road at approximately 2:30 p.m. The stranger was reported to be a 50 to 60 year old Caucasian male driving a black four-door sedan who attempted to lure the student into the vehicle. The student continued to walk home and the police were notified.

While West Islip is a safe community, when information such as this is received, we must take the opportunity to review safety rules with our children and remind them to be alert and careful so they will avoid situations that could place them in harm’s way.
