FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) -

The superintendent for Fairfield City Schools sent a letter to parents warning of an incident near a bus stop where a person allegedly tried to lure a student to their vehicle. 

The student reported to his mother that on Wednesday he got off the bus on Morris Road and Dust Commander Drive and saw a black man in a silver Sedan. The student told his mother that the man made a hand gesture to him to get the child's attention, according to the Fairfield Township Police Department. 

The student made it home safely and did not have any other contact with the man in the Sedan, police said. 

"The safety of your child is our top priority and we want to keep you informed about issues related to the safety of your children," the letter written by Superintendent Paul Otten wrote. "The purpose of this letter is not to cause any unnecessary alarm among student or parents, but rather to raise awareness and encourage communication."

Otten encourages parents to continue to talk with their children about being aware of their surroundings and to report any concerning or suspicious activities to a trusted adult. 

Police and transportation department were notified about the incident and it is under investigation.
