To Parents of South Whidbey Elementary Students,
This morning, Wednesday, May 12th, a fourth grade female student was waiting at a school bus stop in downtown Langley when she was approached by an older man and woman who she described as having darker skin with an accent in a tan or gold hatchback car, who told her the buses weren't running, would she like a ride to school. She said no and went to a nearby business who notified police. This girl did exactly what she has been taught to do. The police will continue to look into the matter.
Parents and staff are encouraged to remind children about good habits of personal safety. If anyone sees this vehicle, please report it either to the Langley Police Department at 360-221-4433 or call 911.
