TENAFLY, N.J. (AP) - School officials in northern New Jersey are urging parents to talk to their kids after the children flocked around a man who showed up in a red Lamborghini dressed as Moses.

Another man handed out doughnuts outside Tenafly Middle School while the man dressed as Moses held up tablets and signs calling for educational rights for special-needs children. Several students had their pictures taken in and near the sports car.

The Record reports principal Ann Powell emailed parents to talk to their children about stranger danger.

One of the men has a 17-year-old daughter who has autism and is an advocate for educational support for special-needs children. His friend, who played Moses, owns the sports car.

Police asked the men to move away from the school.
