Peddlers canvassing the Eastern Wayne school district are believed to be a national book-seller, Wayne County Public Schools' officials said Friday.

Earlier, Ken Derksen, public information officer for the school system, had alerted the community to be aware of individuals going door to door, claiming to represent the school system. There is no connection to the district, Derksen said.

"We have contacted the company and told them to stop representing our school system," Derksen said. "This is a legitimate company but we can't have people representing our school system."
