Dear Parents and Guardians,
It has come to my attention that a man has been acting erratically in the Riverside Park neighborhood recently. The concern is that people from our school community observed this man attempting to engage with children inappropriately, and even dangerously, on Friday, April 5 after school hours and on Saturday, April 6. We have received reports that this man is frequently at Riverside Park around the gazebo and in the surrounding vicinity. Based on credible reports that I have recently received, I am making you aware of this so that you can address this with your children as you deem appropriate.
Please be advised that we have reported this concern to Baltimore City Police and School Police. Police were on site today during dismissal and plan to be on site during dismissal for the remainder of the week. Our counselor/social work team spoke with all classes in grades 3 through 8 today about safety when walking home from school and about safety with strangers. Our staff and police will be monitoring school grounds until this concern subsides.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
