Update on recent clown threats in nearby towns
Schools across America have received a variety of social media posts referencing menacing clowns. There have not been any threats in Region 16 however there have been anonymous Instagram posts and threat in surrounding towns earlier today. Regional School District 16 as well as the Prospect and Beacon Falls Police Departments treat all security issues seriously. While it is clear that there have been many copycat posts (there are at least 4 similar posts made to Connecticut schools which were referenced on WFSB's website today alone) all Region 16 Schools will practice heightened vigilance. We also ask that members of the school community notify their school principal and/or our Local Police Department Lieutenants, Nelson Abarzua of Prospect (email@example.com) and Eddie Rodriquez (firstname.lastname@example.org) of Beacon Falls, if you have any concerns or become aware of any information surrounding school security. We appreciate the cooperation of the Prospect and Beacon Falls Police Department, our students, staff, and parents as we work through this situation.

***The BOE presently has a dress and grooming policy for students. The policy speaks to students maintaining a high standard for neatness and appropriateness of dress and appearance to maintain a proper and healthful educational atmosphere. We have received a recent request from a few members of the educational community to implement a uniform policy. In an effort to appropriately represent the wants of needs of the entire educational community we have a quick survey at each school for the communities of Prospect and Beacon Falls if you so choose to participate and voice your opinion.***
