Please be advised that the Medfield police received a report yesterday from a parent that a white SUV (possibly a Jeep Grand Cherokee) approached two students at their bus stop on Pueblo Street. The driver was male with dark hair. The driver asked the children for directions to the nearest McDonalds. When the parent walked out of her house and called to her children, the driver promptly drove away. As this incident was very similar in nature to the incident that occurred in Norfolk on December 1st, I wanted to make you all aware. I have asked the principals at both the H. Olive Day School and the Freeman-Kennedy School to have all teachers review with students some basic safety principals and the importance of not talking to strangers or approaching unfamiliar cars. I would strongly encourage you to talk with your children tonight to reinforce this important message. The Norfolk Police Department and the Medfield Police Department are both aware of the two similar incidents. As always, student safety is our first priority. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact my office.
