A teacher on school yard duty got wind of the man’s presence, according to media reports. But when the educator tried to approach the intruder, the man left the school and disappeared.
Police were notified over the incident following a formal complaint launched by the school’s Parents Association.
A written message from the PA also asked parents to talk to their kids about stranger danger and remind them they should never approach strangers.
