Community Alert! Important Safety Measure
Dear Marin County parents, students, teachers, school staff and neighbors,
As many are aware, through social media and other media outlets, there have been reports across the country of adults dressing as clowns lurking in areas where young people frequent. As of today, there has been a threat involving a creepy clown that has emerged in our community that we take seriously. Those involved in learning about the threat responded exactly as we would want, by contacting local law enforcement.
While the standard needs to be reasonable and responsible behavior, where common sense prevails, given the current environment, we are recommending that our school communities forgo wearing any clown costumes or masks during the Halloween season this year. If you become of aware of any suspicious behavior or specific threats please alert local law enforcement immediately.
Thank you for all that you do every day to support student learning and success, and your commitment to the safety of our young people and our community!
Mary Jane Burke, Marin County Superintendent of Schools
Robert Doyle, Marin County Sheriff
