Letter From Supt: Clown Costumes


<

 

Dear Parent and Guardians,

 

The safety and security of our students and staff is always our first priority. There has been a recent spike in creepy clown sightings and hoaxes. Several districts across the country have received threatening emails or have been the subject of social media posts.<

 

I have communicated with the local authorities in New Windsor, Town of Newburgh, and the City of Newburgh. There are no credible threats to any NECSD school. However, with the advent of social media, that could change quickly.<

 

NECSD school officials have been informed that clown costumes will be prohibited in school buildings this year. Please discourage your children from wearing a clown costume during Halloween as they may become the target of violence. We want Halloween to be a festive time for our children. <

 

We will continue to work with the police chiefs in each municipality and have the utmost confidence that together we can keep our students and staff safe. Thank you for your support.
