Clown Persona on Social Media

October 6, 2016 at 7:08 pm

Good Afternoon Parents and Students of Daniel Pearl Magnet High School. This is Principal Smith  with an important message from LA School Police, Chief Zipperman:  The safety of all students and staff is our No. 1 priority.

Fulfilling this commitment to safety, we have made our families aware that several of our schools have fielded calls from concerned parents regarding social media reports of individuals with a clown persona committing potential acts of violence.

We are also aware that other school districts across the country may have received similar reports. At L.A. Unified, this issue has been deemed a hoax.

Nonetheless, we want everyone to know that our schools are safe and that our school police department will continue to investigate these reports.

Thank you and have a wonderful afternoon.
