NORCROSS -- Summerour Middle School administrators sent a memo to staff members this week warning of a streaker who appeared on campus late one evening in mid-March.

No students were on campus when the man disrobed and walked around the back parking lot of the school about 8 p.m. on March 17, Gwinnett County Public Schools spokesman Jorge Quintana said. However, several teachers were inside the building working late, and some custodians were on duty.

Quintana said the school sent the memo to faculty and staff for two reasons: to warn them to be careful when they leave the building to go home at night and to ask them to notify police if they see the man in the area.

"This man does not have any business being at school, especially late at night," Quintana said.

The unidentified man was described as being tall and thin. He has a light skin color, black hair and sideburns. He is in his 20s, but no more than 30 years old.

The man was driving an older model white or silver Toyota or Nissan with a sun roof.

Parents were not notified of the incident, because school officials said there was no immediate threat to students, Quintana said. Typically, parents are notified of incidents that disrupt the school day, and he said this incident did not do that.

"It happened late at night," he said. "No students were there for any kind of activity."

A school resource officer began the initial investigation of the incident. Norcross police were also contacted.
