Internet Safety

Please be advised that Perris Union High School District (PUHSD) is aware of the internet posts, which appear to be a nationwide hoax, having to do with clowns. Some posts state that clowns will be coming to schools and causing harm. We are working closely with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department in an effort to put our students and school community at ease. PUHSD in conjunction with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department and School Resource Officer (SRO) Robles completed an investigation in which students were interviewed and websites were researched confirming that this indeed is a hoax. To date we have not had any verifiable clown sightings near or at any schools within PUHSD.

We are aware that there have been threats on the internet and we urge you to have conversations with your students regarding the sites they are visiting as well as general Internet safety. In addition to online safety, now may be a good time to have a conversation about being aware of their overall surroundings. For more information about online safety, please visit our Digital Citizenship site at: http://academy.puhsd.org/digcit

Please rest assured that the safety of our students, staff, and school community is a priority for Perris Union High School District. We take every threat seriously and will take the necessary measures to address them and utilize all of the resources at our disposal to ensure the safety and security of all parties.
