STUDENT SAFETY ALERT
This is to alert you to a series of incidents that occurred on the afternoon of March 24th at 3:50 p.m. and again on the morning of March 25th at 7:20 and 7:25 a.m. related to three teenage female students being assaulted in the vicinity of Christofferson Road between McKenna and Walnut streets.  The description provided by the victims indicates the assailant to be a Caucasian male, in his mid-20’s, 150-170 lbs., ranging from 5’5”-5’10” in height, and possessing light brown/reddish hair, including scruffy facial hair.  He was reportedly wearing jeans and a gray hooded zip-up sweatshirt during yesterday’s incident, and this morning, tan/brown pants, a dark hooded sweatshirt, and sunglasses.  The Turlock Police Department has released multiple sketches of the alleged assailant.  Our purpose in alerting you is to share this information so that you may take the proper precaution before and after school until this person is apprehended.  Fortunately all three students arrived safely to school.  We are working closely with the Turlock Police Department to ensure the person responsible is apprehended as soon as possible, and ask that you please report any suspicious activity to TPD immediately at 668-1200 for a non-emergency report, and 911 for witnessing an injury/assault.  
It should be noted that the district was not alerted to these three incidents prior to the students reporting them to their respective campuses on the morning of March 25th.

Por la mañana del 25 de marzo llevaba pantalón color canela/marrón, una sudadera oscura con capucha  y lentes de sol. El Departamento de Policía de Turlock ha publicado varios bocetos del presunto agresor. Nuestro propósito en avisarles es compartir esta información para que tomen la debida precaución antes y después del horario escolar hasta que esta persona sea localizada y detenida. Afortunadamente las tres estudiantes llegaron sanas y salvas a la escuela. Estamos trabajando estrechamente con el Departamento de Policía de Turlock para asegurar que la persona responsable sea detenida tan pronto como sea posible. Les pedimos que por favor informen cualquier actividad sospechosa a la Policía de Turlock, usando el número 668-1200 para un informe que no es de emergencia y llamar al 911 si ha sido testigo de una lesión/asalto.
Se debe notar que el Distrito no fue alertado de estos tres incidentes antes de que estas estudiantes primero informaron a sus escuelas respectivas en la mañana del 25 de marzo.

Sectiopn 5 Article IX of the State of California Constitution guarantees students a "free public education". The State Supreme Court concluded in the 1984 case of Hartzell v. Connell (35 Cal.3d.899(1984)), "that all educational activities carried on by public school distrcits, extra-curricular as well as curricular, must be without cost to the students who participate in such activities." This same ruling found that "mandatory fees for paticipating in such extra-curricular activities as drama, music, and athetics competition were illegal under the State Constitution." Futhermore, the also rejected the argument that students could be charged so long as the district aived fees for students who were financially unable to pay."
