UPDATE: Suspicious Man Turns Out To Be Legitimate Salesman

A warning for parents has been called off. The message from Albemarle County:

Albemarle County Schools Families and Employees:  I want to thank all of you and our community members for an immediate response to our telephone message.  This afternoon, a man fitting the description provided earlier stopped by the Police Department to talk with officers. His description and his vehicle description matched those given to us by students and parents in the area. He is a college student here from Texas with a group of three other individuals. They work for the company Southwestern Advantage and sell educational books. The group is properly licensed to solicit in Albemarle County.   We greatly appreciate the vigilance of those who reported this incident, and we thank the Albemarle County Police for their rapid response and excellent work to keep our children safe.  Matthew Haas Assistant Superintendent
