Student Safety Advisory

November 9, 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians,

In an effort to ensure the safety of our students, we wanted to pass along some critical information regarding a person trying to contact local athletes on Facebook and attempting to engage with them at high school sporting events. The person’s name is Robert Gordon Slye but has gone by the name of “Nicole Grace Smith” on Facebook. Please read the attached Intelligence Bulletin sent out by the Windham Police Department for further details and images of Mr. Slye. According to police, Mr. Slye has become more brazen and recently tried to lure a New Hampshire wrestler to the Topsfield Fair. It is important to note that investigators have found Massachusetts student-athletes among those who Mr. Slye may have attempted to contact through an alias Facebook account. This may not be exclusive to wrestling, so please inform ALL of your coaches, parents, and students. Please be proactive as Mr. Slye is described as a computer genius and while today he lurks under “Nicole Grace Smith”, tomorrow it could be another alias.

If you have any information regarding this advisory, please contact your local resource officer. If one is not available, contact the Windham Police Department, 603-434-5577.

Herbet W. Levine, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Schools
