Social Media Hoax: September 30, 2016
A social media hoax circulated nationwide this morning alleging that people in clown costumes would harm students or teachers. The rumor affected campuses in multiple districts across Houston. Humble ISD is in constant contact with law enforcement. There is no evidence that this is a credible threat. School is continuing today as usual. Humble ISD Police are providing extra patrol as a precaution and are visible. Law enforcement is investigating, as what some may think of as a social media prank can actually be a crime.
