FYI Public Safety Notice From Local School District

Dear Avon Grove Parents/Guardians:

We are writing to notify you that the school district was informed this
afternoon that the Pennsylvania State Police Avondale Barracks is
investigating a report of an attempted child abduction that occurred on
Friday, April 19, shortly after 2 p.m. in the vicinity of Pennsylvania
Avenue in Avondale Borough.

According to the public information release report provided by police, the
14-year-old victim was walking along Pennsylvania Avenue after getting off
the school bus when the suspect approached her from behind, grabbed her
wrist, and put his hand over her mouth. The report states the victim broke
free after kicking and punching the suspect, who fled the scene on foot.

The suspect is described as a White-Hispanic male, about 5'7" – 5' 8"
inches tall, average build, early twenties, and wearing a black/gray
striped shirt and jeans.

We are sharing this information with our parents as a public safety notice.

We have no further information about the incident at this time, but will

A Note from the Superintendent

Dear UCFSD Community,

Today several students and parents contacted our high school administration
that a student had sent out a tweet of a threatening nature. The high
school administration took immediate action to address the student and
parent concerns. The Pennsylvania State Police were also involved in the
investigation. After a thorough review it does not appear to be a credible
threat to our students or school community.

The good news is that our community and staff did the right thing by
reporting a concern and all are safe. I encourage everyone to continue to
report all suspicious and concerning activity. We will take swift action on
all reports of possible threats to our students and schools.


Cordially,
John Sanville
