    Safety Alert

    Police are investigating an incident involving an unknown male approaching a child on the way to school. Events of this nature highlight the importance of being alert to the possibility of child abductions. It is essential that we remain vigilant and proactive to be safe against possible child abductions. While we do not want to incite unnecessary fear, we believe that it is our responsibility as parents and caregivers to take steps to protect our children from potential risks.
