Seattle student sexually assaulted near Ballard school – KIRO 7 News Seattle

SEATTLE – A high school-age student reported being sexually assaulted in the Ballard neighborhood.

According to a letter sent to parents of students at Salmon Bay K-8 School Thursday, the student was walking through the Adams Elementary School campus neighborhood, which is located at 6110 28th Avenue Northwest.

Salmon Bay K-8 school principal, Barbara Dixon, said in the letter that the student was near a 7-Eleven store not far from the elementary school when the latest attack occurred.

The letter said a police report had been submitted and that Seattle Public Schools security was aware of the situation.

“The student should be commended for having the courage to disclose the incident so that (Seattle police) can investigate. Looking to the future, I would like to stress that we must remain vigilant about safety everywhere,” Dixon said in the letter.

Dixon reminded families to have conversations about making sure children of all ages are always aware of their surroundings and should walk or travel in groups or pairs whenever possible.

Other advice in the letter was:

• If you see something wrong, say something.

• If something doesn’t look good or comfortable, don’t go for it.

• You are always welcome to speak to a trusted adult.
