ALERT: Denny student approached while walking to school

Denny International Middle School principal Jeff Clark just shared this note sent to families:

Good Afternoon Denny and Sealth Families,

This morning at approximately 10:45 am, a Denny scholar was walking to school. When she was on Kenyon near the school bus zone entrance, the driver of a black Prius asked her to get in the car. She came right in to school and reported it. School staff contacted the Seattle Police Department, who responded very quickly. Scholars have been informed about the description of the car and reminded of safe walking procedures. We will have extra supervision in that area.

Denny and Chief Sealth Administration

He also asked us to share this message:

Our School Messenger email system sends out email notices automatically to all family email addresses in our system. If any Denny or Sealth family is not receiving the email, please call the school main office. We can confirm that we have your correct and current email address and can tell you if your email system is blocking our email, preventing you from receiving it. Thank you.

P.S. Thanks also to the Denny/Sealth parents who forwarded the top note (moments after the principal sent it out) to make sure we’d received it.

    I wonder if it’s any relation to the similar occurrence  in Arbor Heights that was reported last week?

      That’s the first thing that came to my mind too  That was a black 4 door sedan and this was a black Prius.  Is a Prius a sedan?  (obviously I am not a car person!)

    I was thinking the same. Maybe this is the same vehicle. The Prius does come in two and four door models. I will be watching very closely around school for a possible matching vehicle.

    I’d love to see a mandatory 10 year zero probation sentence for anyone kidnapping or trying to do so. That or Gitmo for awhile.

Sorry, comment time is over.
