Parents and guardians,
Today, we had several students expressing concerns about a rumor that a clown was seen in the local area. The rumor was likely spurred by recent news stories and social media posts about clowns posing a danger to the public. This rumor was traced back to the source, who confirmed it was not true. All children affected by this discussion were reassured that there was no cause for concern.
We reminded them of the safety precautions we reviewed at the beginning of the year and assured them that we will remain vigilant.
