The Miami-Dade County Public Schools has recently been notified by the Miami-Dade Police Department as to the presence of specific registered sexual predators who are now residing in Miami-Dade County.
In an effort to keep our children safe, enclosed are the pictures of specific individuals which have been provided to us by the Miami-Dade Police Department. At this time, we have had no reports of any additional crimes or incidents involving these individuals. If you need any further information regarding these individuals, please feel free to contact the Florida Department of Law Enforcement through their internet website located at www.fdle.state.fl.us, or through their toll free telephone number, 1-888-357-7332. It is our hope that these individuals no longer pose a threat to our children and our community.
While the staff at our school will be explaining and teaching your child the relevant safety measures that they should know, please take this opportunity to contact us for other resources that you may be able to utilize at home with your child. In order to help educate your child on safety measures, we encourage you not to solely rely on this information, but seek other sources such as those provided at the following websites, FDLE's Guide Lights to Protect Your Child's Safety located at http: //www.fdle.state.fl.us/MCICSearch!Publications.asp, and the National Center for Missing and
Exploited Children located at http://www.missingkids.com/. If you have any doubts regarding how to handle the situation with your child or need additional information about sexual predators in general, please contact your local law enforcement agency.
The efforts of the school system, combined with yours and those of local law enforcement agencies, will enhance the safety of our children. Your support is greatly appreciated.
