The youth ignored the man, caught up with his friends and continued riding to his home. The district sent a letter to families who have children at John Baldwin.
"We want to make sure parents are informed," said school district spokesman Terry Koehne. "If an incident occurs like this, we encourage families to report this immediately."
The district encourages students who encounter strange situations to go back and notify their schools. District officials would then inform their parents and police.
The recent incident sparked a flurry of police calls, said police Sgt. Troy Craig. As a result, Danville police increased their patrol cars and investigated the calls. However, police couldn't find the man that fit boy's description and don't know if he intended to abduct the child.
"We haven't come to a conclusion if there was malicious intent," said police Sgt. Troy Craig.
