Letter from the Principal: October 21, 2021

Dear Ross Sterling Middle School Families,

We have received a report of a stranger danger concern involving a student who was walking to school at approximately 9:30 this morning on McDugald Road near Wilson Road. A man pulled up and asked if the student needed a ride. The student said no and he drove away. 

The man, who said his name was Milton, is believed to be in his mid-30s, and was wearing a red cap and grey shirt. He was driving a small silver car.

This is a good opportunity to emphasize the following safety tips with your children:

  • If anything unusual occurs, tell an adult immediately.  Parents and teachers need to know what happened right away.
  • Walk or bike to and from school in groups.
  • Never talk to strangers or accept rides from them.
  • Arrange for immediate access to neighbors and other trusted adults who could answer questions or be contacted in an emergency. 
  • Tour the neighborhood with your child to identify safe and dangerous circumstances. 
  • Never get into a car, enter a home, look for a lost pet, or accept candy or toys from an adult, unless your parents know what you are doing and have given you their permission first.  

Please report any concerns to school staff, Humble ISD Police at 281-641-7900, or through the Humble ISD iHELP app.  

Thank you,

Damico Bartley
