From Dallas ISD:
In Dallas ISD, the safety of students and staff is always our top priority. As issues of concern arise, the district believes it is appropriate to share information with parents.
Dallas ISD is aware of the “clown threats” occurring on social media across the nation. On Monday, October 3, 2016, several of our campuses reported receiving calls inquiring about these threats. As a precaution, the Dallas ISD Police Department is working with the city’s police force to track this threat, and we are stepping up patrols near campuses that have reported these calls to ensure our campuses remain safe.
At this time, the situation is under control. The district has confirmed that police are calling the clown threat a hoax, and there is no perceived threat. Be assured the district will continue to monitor developments and keep you informed.
As always, the safety of our students and staff is Dallas ISD’s number one priority.
