Early Dismissal from GHS 8/4, 8/6, 8/7

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
It’s come to our attention two major traffic headaches in Greenwood may reopen this weekend. If so, this should alleviate our problem of late busses as we’ve experienced the last three school days. However, until then we need to make some adjustments to allow middle and elementary routes to be on schedule. Apparently middle school and especially elementary routes are running late due to heavy traffic.

So, the high school will dismiss this Tuesday (tomorrow), Thursday, and Friday at 2:20pm. This is only for this week. We will not dismiss earlier than our normal 2pm time on Wednesday due to the 6-hour seat requirement by the IDOE.

Hopefully the extra 10 minutes will allow busses to get to MS and elementary routes in sufficient time. Again, we will dismiss early this Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at 2:20pm. Thanks for your understanding.

Suspicious bus stop behavior

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
On September 5, 2014 Greenwood Police received reports of a man trying to lure children into

his vehicle while they were waiting for their bus at a bus stop. This occurred in the area of the

Summerfield Village neighborhood near Worthsville Road just west of US 31. The man was

described as an older white male and was seen driving an older light blue Chevy Camaro.

Greenwood officers located the suspect vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. The police

officers identified the subject and questioned the man concerning the reported behavior.

During questioning, the man stated that he didn’t know it was illegal to stop and talk with the

children. The officers explained that the circumstances were inappropriate at the least and he

was told to stay away from the bus stops in the future.

The Greenwood Police Department is actively investigating this incident and, if deemed

appropriate, will request criminal charges from the Johnson County Prosecutor’s Office. Our

officers will be conducting extra patrols of area bus stops for the next few weeks. Whiteland,

Greenwood and Center Grove schools have been notified and are taking appropriate actions. A

picture is attached of the vehicle.

No arrest has been made at this time. This notice is to make the public aware of this incident

and to have the children be aware of their surroundings when waiting for their buses. Citizens

are urged to call 911 to report any suspicious persons at or near bus stops. Continue reading
