Schools Watching “Clown” Trend

All this talk about creepy looking clowns has a lot of people on edge. Especially after some online threats directed to some area schools.

We talked to a couple of districts about the clown problem and while they agree the threats are probably a hoax, they’re not taking them lightly.

Barry Perez at Northside ISD says their top priority is the safety of their students and staff.

“We’re asking our district Police to very diligent in not only monitoring social media but also when applicable, investigating to the extent that we can to see if there’s any connection to the campus.”

Aubrey Chancellor at North East ISD says the posted a message on their website urging parents to use the opportunity to talk to their children about how powerful and dangerous social media can be.
