Newsletter Week of October 4, 2021

Dear NRHS Community,

I hope you enjoyed the weekend. I had the pleasure of attending the girl's varsity soccer game on Saturday evening. We had a decisive 4-0 win against Marlboro and our girls played an amazing game. They also impressed me with their sportsmanship and teamwork. Following the game we honored our seniors. It was a great night!

This Wednesday we have student council elections during our 20 minute homeroom period and will host our club and activities fair during the four lunches.

I want to thank all our teachers as well as all the families who came to Back to School Night last Thursday. The event was very well attended! Stay tuned for more information about parent teacher conferences, which will take place at the end of this month.

Have a wonderful week Nashoba!

Tik Tok and Social Media

We would like to bring to your attention a matter that we would appreciate your partnership to address. Many students use an app called TikTok. Once in a while, there will be a trend to complete a challenge through TikTok where people record themselves doing something, and then share it. Unfortunately, sometimes these challenges encourage unethical, illegal, or dangerous behavior (e.g. the Tide Pod challenge).

Currently, there is a TikTok challenge circulating called the "Devious Licks" challenge. In it, students are encouraged to steal things from their schools and post about it on TikTok. Students get more "points" for higher value or riskier items to steal. We are hearing from neighboring schools that they are struggling with the theft of everything from pens to soap dispensers, etc.

Obviously a trend like this would financially impact our school and our staff members. If students are caught stealing items from our community, penalties including suspension, fines, and police involvement would all potentially be in place, as outlined in our Student Handbook.

We are asking for parent and guardian help and support to talk with students about this challenge, let them know of the repercussions, and address the values we have in our school including Integrity.

Here is some more information about the challenge, from various news outlets:

In addition, we encourage parents and guardians to not only monitor their teenagers use of social media, but also self monitor their own use of social media to ensure we, as the adults, are being positive role models in our online presence.

Thank you for your help and understanding.
