Peninsula School District warns families of strangers offering kids rides

Staff writerDecember 4, 2013 

The Peninsula School District sent a message Wednesday to families with children in the district, warning them about strangers offering rides to students walking home from their bus stops.

The message said both incidents occurred Tuesday afternoon and were reported to school authorities and law enforcement.

One incident happened on Fox Island, near the intersection of Island Boulevard and Kamus Drive. The driver was described as a white male in his 60s driving a newer model gray Toyota Prius.

The second occurred in the area of Goodman Middle School and Chelsea Park. The driver in this incident was described as a white female, along with a white male passenger, who both appeared to be in their 50s. They were reported to be in a navy blue van in bad condition, with one headlight out.

The school district urged parents to remind their children not to talk with suspicious people and to report incidents to a trusted adult.
