ISLIP -

An Islip High School student says he was followed home from school twice this week.

In a letter to parents, the school principal said a blue minivan pulled out of a nearby McDonald's parking lot.

The man in the minivan then followed the boy along Main Street on Monday and Tuesday.

On both days when the student got home, the van drove away.

The driver is described as a white man with a white beard.
