The Fort Dodge Community School District notified parents Friday afternoon about an incident that occurred at Butler Elementary School.
Jennifer Lane, a spokeswoman for the FDCSD, said a man approached a student at Butler and asked her if she could help him find his lost dog.
The girl ran away from the man and immediately told adults at the school, who then alerted the Fort Dodge Police Department.
Lane said Fort Dodge police are investigating the incident.
