ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – With the recent rash of reports of clown hoaxes, the Pattonville School Superintendent has notified parents of a potential threat.

Dr. Mike Fulton sent out the following statement Sunday afternoon:

“Today we became aware of a threat against Pattonville High School that appears to be related to the national craze of creepy clown hoaxes and sightings. We are assisting the Maryland Heights police in investigating this threat. School will be held as normal tomorrow, however we will have an extra police presence as an added precaution. We must take all threats seriously and will always take the steps necessary to ensure the safety and security of our students and staff.

Additionally, Florissant Police have posted on their Facebook page they are actively working to find the source of the threats and that they will increase their presence at the schools near the start and end of the day.
