Superintendent’s Message


Office of the Superintendent


October 2016

Dear Families,

Halloween seems to be a month-long event these days. The fear and anxiety regarding dangerous clowns is now an issue, fueled mostly by social media. Together we all need to handle this with your usual mix of good judgment, common sense and empathy. I spoke with the Chief of Police this morning. This unease regarding clowns is based on rumor, he notes. There have been no credible sightings of people in clown costumes in Shelton!

*please remember how secure our schools are
*and how well supervised our recess (where applicable) and arrival/dismissals are

And again, we are in regular contact with the Shelton Police who report NO sightings of clowns; these clown-themed online rumors and threats are being tracked by police. While we can’t be dismissive of these fears, especially on the part of our children, let’s remind them that parents, teachers and the police are working together to keep them safe! The truth is that many children around the nation are being frightened by these rumors, and a lot of people do feel uneasy about clowns (before these rumors). Let’s acknowledge that and reassure our children!

If anyone in a clown costume does come onto any school campus, we will call the police immediately.

We may indeed have to deal with pranksters who have poor taste, but together we’ll get through it!

Let’s all take a deep breath and communicate with each other, in a calm, rational way.

Thank you.

Chris Clouet
