One of our students reported being followed by a white truck with a black tool box while riding a bike to school on Tuesday morning. It happened along Shady Maple Court near Shady Maple Drive. Once the student reached a park where other adults were present, the truck drove away. The student was never harmed. Humble ISD Police created a report and have increased patrols in the area.
This is a good opportunity to remind families about the following stranger danger safety tips at home: If anything unusual occurs, tell an adult immediately. Parents and teachers need to know what happened right away. Walk or bike to and from school in groups. Never talk to strangers or accept rides from them. Arrange for immediate access to neighbors and other trusted adults who could answer questions or be contacted in an emergency. Tour the neighborhood with your child to identify safe and dangerous circumstances. Never get into a car, enter a home, look for a lost pet, or accept candy or toys from an adult, unless your parents know what you are doing and have given you their permission first.
Please report any concerns to the Houston Police Department at 713-884-3131 or Humble ISD Police at 281-641-7900.
