Protected Static sent us a note this afternoon with the Hamilton International Middle School weekly newsletter. The top announcement is a good safety reminder for everyone:
We place the safety and security of our students as our highest priority, and are sharing the following information with you. Late yesterday afternoon, a Hamilton student was walking from a friend’s house near the school to the bus stop. The student was approached by a man who tried to grab her. The student kicked the man and escaped to the bus, and a police report has been filed.
As we approach winter and our hours of daylight decrease, some basic and easy-to-follow safety precautions from the City of Seattle and King County Metro Transit Police are helpful to know. We encourage you to share them with your students so they can keep this information in mind as they travel to and from school.
