School officials in Gig Harbor are asking parents to speak with their children about safety after a student reported that a man repeatedly tried to get her into his vehicle while she walked to school last week.
The girl reported the incident Oct. 21. Goodman Middle School sent a letter to parents and posted it on their website this week.
The student reported that a man in a white minivan offered her a ride. After she refused, “the man persisted by telling her that she would be late and that he had just dropped his child off at school for band,” according to the letter.
Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said there have been no other incidents.
