Dear LISD Parents,

This morning, while a Strawn Elementary student was waiting for the bus to go to school, a man, in what was described as a grey car, drove up and asked if the student needed a ride. The student saw the bus coming and told the stranger no. The car immediately drove away.

Upon arrival at school, the student told the homeroom teacher, who immediately reported it to campus administrators. The district notified the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office of the incident for investigation.

For this reason, the district is sharing this information widely to encourage you to please have a conversation with your children about how to stay safe in the community, including tips such as:

  • DO NOT open the front door without a parent present.

  • DO NOT go anywhere with a stranger--even if they have a stuffed animal or promise you candy.

  • If a stranger asks you for help--like for directions or to help find a lost puppy-- DO NOT stick around. Run away. Adults do not need help from children.

  • Tell an adult right away so the adults can help keep you and others safe.

We are grateful that the student was unharmed, and we hope by sharing this, we can help raise awareness for all of our Lions and  help keep them safe.

Thank you,

Christina Courson
