Creepy clown threats will be taken seriously…

Since many kids who live in Everett attend classes within Mukilteo Schools we thought it best to pass along this information regarding Creepy Clowns sent out today by the Mukilteo School District...

National and local news reports, as well as discussion on social media, have focused attention recently on stories involving creepy clowns who are making threats against schools. You may have heard your child talk about such threats in our area.

While we have no reason to believe that any of our schools or our students are in any danger from these rumors, we do feel it is necessary to pass along the following about these stories and rumors in general:

·       Threats made to any of our schools are taken very seriously and are thoroughly investigated by the school and by local law enforcement. All threats, even those that a student thinks are funny and not intended to hurt anyone, can be extremely disruptive to the school and to the education of students.

·       It is extremely important that students tell an adult if they receive or hear of any threats to their school. We encourage parents to report any information that they hear by calling their child’s school or by using our SafeSchools Alert hotline. You can leave a phone message or send a text to 425-374-0021, send an email to 1438@alert1.us, or visit the website at http://1438.alert1.us. If you feel the threat is an emergency needing immediate attention, report it by calling 9-1-1.

·       Talk to your children about the safe use of social media. Just as you taught them not to talk to strangers, they also need to know that they shouldn’t follow strangers on social media. Teach them to only interact with people that they know.

Providing a safe and secure learning environment for students is our highest priority. We hope this information is useful to you.

    War on Halloween. This clown thing is stupid. Anything for the Seattle area to butt its way into a national trend. Pretty soon they will be making bumper stickers with a WA state outline and a 12 with a clown face reading “NW PROUD.” Gotta have that northwest connection.

    If I run into a clown, they will majorly regret it.
