Here is a Stranger Danger alert from Humble ISD about an incident that happened with an Humble Middle School student last Friday.
"Dear Humble Middle School Families,
I am writing today to make you aware of an incident that involved one of our students. On Friday, August 23, 2019 at approximately 3 p.m., an eighth grade student was walking home from school along Timber Forest Drive when she was approached by two men. She said one of them had a rope. The student ran away and hid in a garage. The girl said both men got in their vehicles and drove away. She was not harmed. A report was filed with the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's office and Humble ISD police have increased patrols in the area.
This is a good opportunity to remind families about the following stranger danger safety tips at home: 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 continue to encourage your children to report any concerns to our school staff, Humble ISD Police (281-641-7900) or through the Humble ISD iHelp app.
@chasinghosts : It used to be, but years ago they made the Wilson Rd. location into the 9th-grade campus. They moved Humble Middle School to Will Clayton and Woodland Hills. Then at some point, they moved the 9th-graders back to Humble High campus and opened Ross Sterling Middle School in the old Humble Middle School location on Wilson.

@Sammee : Thanks didn't hear that, and I think they still have a middle school sign up there. Probably safer to keep it than to remove and have to put back up in a few years.
@Greg : Agree. It's sad to say but at this point everyone driving/walking, jogging around before and after, (parents or not) need to be watching out for all these kiddos safety. I always do when I see kids of all ages walking home. Joe Blow driving down the street and could be out on bond for all I know. Not paranoid but just as precaution and a Momma too! 🙌
