From Montclair Schools:
Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff,
This morning, the Montclair Police Department reported a lewdness incident in Clifton. A driver pulled up to a juvenile that was walking to ask for directions. The juvenile saw that the driver was naked from the waist down. The juvenile immediately fled the scene and the driver drove off in the opposite direction. It should be noted that the driver never asked nor gestured for the juvenile to enter his vehicle.
Please remind your children never to approach a vehicle they are not familiar with at any time, encourage them to walk with friends when possible, and always be mindful of their surroundings. It is important that they report any circumstance of stranger danger. No details are too small and they should know to call 911 for help and a swift response. Naturally times to be extra cautious would be arrival and dismissal.
The Montclair Police Department ran extra patrols this morning around our schools as a precaution. They are on notice to provide additional attention at dismissal as well.
