Suspicious Vehicle Spotted at Dinkelmeyer

Editor's Note: The following letter was written and submitted by North Bellmore School District Superintendent Arnold Goldstein.

While there is no reason for alarm, I wanted you to know that a suspicious vehicle was spotted outside Dinkelmeyer during dismissal this afternoon.

The white GMC Denali, with a black grill, remained standing for a period of time and then moved on. The driver was described as a large man about six feet tall, with dark complexion (not African American), short dark cropped hair with a sharp angled beard on his jaw.

Police were notified and are following up. They advise that if you spot the truck or see anything suspicious, you should call 911 immediately. The police caution that you should NOT follow the vehicle under any circumstances. Additionally, I urge you to speak with your children and to advise them to be alert and to avoid contact with strangers.

Thank you. We will continue to keep you informed if there is any additional information to share.

All these ominous sightings do NOTHING more than scare the daylights out of people, namely the mothers and fathers of the children that attend our schools. Maybe, just maybe the guy pulled to the side to talk on his cell phone. Who knows? The point is that these continued messages home(that is above) that I and many others receive in our email inboxesand on voicemail, just fan the flames of an already neurotic public. How about the Superitendent stop playing savior from the outside world and save our children from the horrible things that go on WITHIN the North Bellmore Schools system that happen almost daily. The continuing violent threats by the same children, the bullying, the teachers that mistreat their students.There are children who dont want to attend because of this Its all true , that is what should be reported so parents can decide whether or not to let their children attend our schools.

The way things are today, it probably won't take much for a parent to become scared. Before any school pushes the panic button. Make sure the incident is something. This vehicle wasn't even on school property, but on a public street, or the person seen talking to anyone (or a child). I agree you can't be too cautious these days. But let's not get crazy.
