Attempted Abduction in Neighboring District

January 15, 2020


Dear Germantown CSD families,


Law enforcement is currently investigating an abduction attempt in a neighboring area outside of our district. We are asking you to have a conversation with your children about being alert and cautious if they are ever approached by a stranger.

This incident is a perfect example of our school community taking the mantra of “if you see something, say something” seriously. Please reinforce with your children the importance of reporting any suspicious activity to an adult as soon as possible.

We are grateful for the relationship and cooperation we have with our school resource deputy and the Columbia County Sheriff’s Department. Please know that we take the safety of our students and staff very seriously.
