Stranger Danger Alert for Elk Grove schools

Stranger Danger Alert for Elk Grove schools

 Elk Grove Unified School District and our principal from Franklin Elementary School, Sheila Caruthers sends out this message to our local community:

We are working with the Elk Grove Police Department (EGPD) to inform parents about a suspicious man who has reportedly tried to lure teenagers to his vehicle.  As you may recall, we sent home a letter to parents earlier this month about an incident that took place on October 16 at Whitelock Parkway and Schuler Ranch Road.  Today, EGPD informed the District that they are investigating four incidents that appear to be all related.  The following information details the four incidents:

On Saturday, October 12 at 2:30 p.m., a 13-year-old boy was walking in the area of Darley Way and Toscano Drive when a vehicle pulled up next to him.  The male driver attempted to engage the boy in conversation.  The boy did not respond and the vehicle drove away.

EGUSD encourages students to “Map Your Future”

EGUSD encourages students to “Map Your Future”

Parents and students will have an opportunity to map a path to college and careers at the Elk Grove Unified School District’s first annual Map Your Future: K-12 Career Pathways Exposition from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, October 8 at Monterey Trail High School.  The event is offered through a partnership between EGUSD, Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce and Elk Grove Economic Development Corporation.

“Research has shown that a key factor in a child’s college and career success is his or her engagement in the K-12 learning process,” said Steven M. Ladd, Ed.D., EGUSD superintendent.  “Students – and our data – tell us a sense of belonging and an interest in what they are learning result in higher attendance and better academic performance.  Participation in a career pathway is one way students can become involved in a rewarding, supportive, engaging learning community.”
