Riverwood Middle School: Sept. 24, 2019

September 24, 2019

 

Dear Riverwood Middle School Families,

 

I want to make you aware of an incident that involved one of our students. At approximately 8 a.m., a sixth grade boy was riding his bike to school on the green belt near Hidden Lakes and the Kings Point community pool. A woman who was walking toward him along the green belt asked him to stop. He kept riding, and she called out for him to come back and began running after him.  He believes she followed him for some distance. 

 

The woman is described as white, in her 30s, with brown hair, wearing black shorts and a black top with two white stripes. Humble ISD Police were notified and a report was made. A police officer searched the area but did not see the woman.

 

This is a good opportunity to review the following safety tips with your student:

 

  • If anything unusual occurs, tell an adult immediately.  Parents and teachers need to know what happened right away.
  • Walk or bike to and from school in groups.
  • Never talk to strangers or accept rides from them.
  • Arrange for immediate access to neighbors and other trusted adults who could answer questions or be contacted in an emergency. 
  • Tour the neighborhood with your student to identify safe and dangerous circumstances. 
  • Never get into a car, enter a home, look for a lost pet, or accept candy or toys from an adult, unless your parents know what you are doing and have given you their permission first. 

Please continue to encourage your children to report any concerns to our school staff, Humble ISD Police (281-641-7900) or through the Humble ISD iHelp app. 

 

Sincerely, 
Matt Roser, Principal
