I understand that there was a Facebook post earlier in the week informing the community of a suspicious individual around the Otis and Krusi Park neighborhood. While I am unsure if the individual is the same person, I wanted to inform everyone that there was an individual at the park yesterday, Friday October 5th. He appeared to be in in his late twenties to early thirties, and was possibly under the influence. He was escorted away from the area where children play, and Alameda Police Department was notified. APD did arrive making sure that the individual left the immediate area surrounding our school. The individual had no contact with our students.
Keeping our students safe is priority. As many of you may know, a fence will be installed around our school’s perimeter. We are currently waiting for approval from the California Division of the State Architect before work can begin. Our hope is that installation will happen no later that summer of 2019. I will share updates as I get them.
