Parents, As some of you may be aware, there is a TikTok challenge going on in which students are filming themselves vandalizing the school's restroom. The vandalism ranges from putting rolls of tissue in the toilet to tearing the dispensers off the walls. It is very important that you are monitoring your child's online activity for safety and appropriateness of these challenges. The parent, of any student caught vandalizing school property, will be responsible for the cost of damages, and the student will be disciplined accordingly. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact a school administrator.
