The principal at Southport Middle School sent out a voice message alert to parents, Wednesday, after a sixth-grader told him a strange man tried to lure her into his car after school.
In the message, Brian Knight explained that the girl was standing outside the Sixth Grade Academy doors waiting for her ride, when a man in a red car pulled up next to her.
He said the student immediately went inside the school and told officials who then called police.
"The young lady was unharmed and we are proud of how she handled the situation," continued Knight in the voice message.
Hearing the message was hard for Charis Lavine who has a child that attends Southport Middle School.
"It's scary for any parent to hear that it happened to their child," said Lavine.
She said she couldn't believe someone would try to pick up a child on school property in broad daylight.
"They need to be left alone. It's not right that our kids can't go out into the world and not be able to be kids, because they always have to watch over their back that somebody might grab them."
She hopes other parents and even people who live near the school will keep an extra watch on all students.
