The National City School District sent a warning to parents Friday regarding a “suspicious individual” recently seen near several schools.
The safety bulletin sent to parents and guardians said a suspicious person had been observed outside various elementary school campuses in the area, but did not name specific schools.
A suspect description was not released by the school district, but NBC 7 has reached out to the district for further comment.
NBC 7 also reached out the the National City Police Department for more details on the matter. Police say an investigation has been launched, but at this time, could not release a suspect description.
That information is forthcoming, officials said.
The bulletin issued by the school goes on to remind parents to be “especially vigilant regarding strangers and suspicious persons over fall break” and report any suspicious activity to authorities.
The district also said parents and guardians should use this opportunity to remind their children of the importance of safety and avoiding strangers.
