Stranger Offers Granby Middle School Student a Ride to School

School officials in Granby are alerting parents after a middle school student was confronted twice by a strange woman and offered a ride to school Thursday morning.

Granby superintendent Dr. Alan Addley wrote in a letter to parents Thursday afternoon that a woman, about 30 years old, pulled up next to the boy in a white car and urged him to get in. He refused and continued walking, and the woman confronted him again.

Addley said the student walked to Granby Memorial Middle School and was not hurt. School officials are encouraging parents to talk with their kids and remind them never to accept rides from strangers.

School administrators and teachers will be "particularly vigilant" during drop-off and pickup times over the next few days, according to Addley.
