WFISD addresses "creepy clown" threat

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - WFISD Communications Officer, Ashley Thomas sent out the following press release on October 4th in response to "creepy clown" threat.

"To our knowledge, there have been no credible reports of suspicious persons in or around any of our schools in WFISD. However, WFISD does take any possible threat seriously and we are working closely with local law enforcement to investigate any and all reports.

Several people nationally have been arrested in recent weeks for making false clown threats and they face serious consequences. Threatening a school is a serious and criminal matter and will be treated as such.

We have safety protocols in place at all schools and staff has been directed to be vigilant and alert. As always, only the main entrance of the campus will be accessible to the public and all visitors must check in at the front office.

The safety and security of our students and staff is our number one priority. If a community member or student sees or reads anything suspicious, they are urged to contact local law enforcement as soon as possible."
