Parents and community members may have heard that, on the
morning of May 7, La Porte ISD received a report of a second attempted abduction of a student.
Thanks to the expedient professional response of the La Porte Police
Department, this report has been
resolved. After speaking with the driver of the vehicle, the
investigating LPPD personnel concluded that the situation was misinterpreted by
the student and that there was not a threat. We appreciate the student's
quick reaction and the response of the community member who opened his/her home
to the student and reported the incident. Because safety is so important,
it is our strong preference that students err on the side of caution.
When today's incident was reported, our campuses and
district responded immediately. We appreciate the quick actions of our
employees to ensure the safety of all our children. La Porte ISD will
remain in a state of heightened vigilance until the May 5 incident is
resolved. Thank you for your concern for our students.
