The principal of Charlotte Wood Middle School is reporting a potentially dangerous incident involving one of the school's students this morning.
A Charlotte Wood student reported being followed to school in the Paraiso/Brookside/Orange Blossom area of Danville by two men in a dark blue truck with a camper shell and a significant amount of rust, Principal Chris George wrote in a letter to parents Friday.
The student is safe and did an excellent job of reporting the incident to the school, said San Ramon Valley High School Principal Ruth Steele, who sent an email notifying parents of the event..
The incident has been reported to the Danville Police Department, which assisted the school and neighborhood with extra supervision as students left school on Friday.
Steele asked parents to remind their children that if they ever have any safety concerns while traveling to or from school, or while at school, to report them to the school as soon as they can.
The school district is currently reviewing and adjusting many of its procedures and systems on campus in the light of recent school shootings at Sandy Hook in Connecticut before winter break and at Taft Union High School in Central California yesterday.
Steele said parents will notice changes in the visibility of campus supervisors, and all visitors will need to sign in at the main office.
The school is adding signs and taking other steps to improve campus security, including improving its existing camera system and looking into adding gates to control vehicular access to campus.
