School officials in the Puyallup School District are warning parents about several reported incidents involving adults possibly trying to lure students into cars.
On Friday the district sent phone messages to parents at Carson and Brouillet elementary schools and Stahl Junior High School about a white male driving a baby blue Volkswagen Passat who was following students.
The latest incident occurred Thursday near Carson, and a parent reported it to the school, said school district spokeswoman Karen Hansen.
Also Thursday, the school district sent a letter to parents of students at Ferrucci Junior High School and Wildwood and Sunrise elementary schools after two boys who attend Ferrucci said they were approached at their bus stop by a man driving a two-tone Bronco.
The boys said the man asked if they wanted to make money doing yard work. The boys told school officials that when they refused the offer, the man became angry and drove off quickly. The Bronco driver is described as white, in his 30s, with dark blond hair, blueish eyes and a scruffy face.
School officials said they notified the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department about the incidents. Details of the Sheriff’s Department investigation were not available Monday.
