BRYAN - Henderson Elementary in Bryan is taking extra precautions after a man near school property Wednesday was spotted trying to gesture at students playing on the playground to come closer to him.
A letter went out to parents of students Thursday alerting them of the incident that happened the day before.
Bryan ISD officials say students told teachers about the man and teachers alerted authorities.
The playground was cleared, the campus secured and police were called.
Police searched the area but did not find the man. They'll be patrolling the school and the area surrounding it over the next few days.
Students will also be kept closer to the school while on the playground as a precaution.
