Reported Threats from "Clowns" are Hoaxes

We understand there are reported threats in Temple from people dressing up as clowns. 

We’re working with Temple Police, and they believe these threats are fake. 

This follows a national trend of similar threats that have turned out to be hoaxes. 

With safety in mind, Temple Police will have extra officers at Temple High School for the remainder of the day. 

Even though this is intended to be a joke, anyone sending these threats should know they can be arrested and charged with a crime.
