Many of you have probably heard chatter about people dressed as clowns planning on doing harm to people in schools. Law enforcement officials assure us that none of the threats to schools have been substantiated, including reports about incidents in Vermont schools.
We want to assure you that your school district and Stowe Police Department (SPD) officials work closely together to ensure students are safe and to respond to potential disruptions to school operations, such as this sort of hoax.
You can help by avoiding the spread of rumors on social media. Report concerns about student or community safety directly to the Stowe Police and/or to your child's school. Please also report any information about individuals who may be involved in this sort of threatening, disruptive behavior directly to SPD at 253-7126.
If your child has questions about this hoax, or is worried or feeling stressed about this or any other matter, please encourage them to reach out to their school counselor or any trusted adult at school.
We thank you for your assistance with preventing disruptions to student learning, as this sort of hoax can cause.
