Elizabeth School District spokesman Pat Politano issued the following statement in response to an attempted luring incident that occurred last week:
"The Elizabeth School District follows the direction of law enforcement experts in situations like these because the safety of the children is its top priority.
"Parents were notified immediately by automated phone calls, electronic mail, a post to the district website and a notice sent home with students. Notices were sent in multiple languages.
"Security personnel, principals, and other administrative officials in the district were notified immediately as well, under the recommendation of law enforcement.
"The methods of notification and the extent of those notices were done at the direction of the police since they're the experts.
"The district will update the school community at the appropriate time."
