According to NBC4NY: "
New Haven Public School district is prohibiting clown costumes and any other "symbols of terror" during this year's Halloween season because of the fear a creepy clown craze sweeping social media is instilling.
Officials from the district said Monday they are working with the New Haven Police Department to investigate the authenticity of a number of clown-related Instagram posts that they learned about that day."
"Any incident in which a student is found with clown-like apparel or other costumes that are perceived to be threatening given this context will be handled on a case-by-case basis," Harries said. "We are encouraging and asking parents to be our partners in this and help ensure that students are not getting clown masks or going to school with clown masks or wearing clown-like attire for their own safety and also for their overall school climate."
