I heard several stories about the usual chaos involved with the first day of school. Feel free to share yours. 🙂 I heard there was a lot of excitement and a lot of confusion at the new Carrie Busey (will have to find out more in just a few moments).
In other news, found this on the MTD site:
And then a sobering and frightening reminder to be on the look out for bad guys (dated yesterday – Aug 21):
In the last week, several area towns have reported incidents involving attempts by strangers to lure younger children to vehicles. Today, two midday incidents were reported west of Lincoln School in Monticello in which a female and male adult driving a red pickup truck with a topper ask younger children to approach their vehicle for assistance in finding a lost dog. The children ran from the vehicle and reported the incident to a nearby adult who called the school and police. The vehicle was not found. I have reviewed the situation with the Monticello Police department. Please discuss these types of incidents with your children and tell them to call 911 in an emergency. The safety of our children is our number one concern.
