Tik Tok Situation....

Dear Vermilion Parish Parents and Guardians

VPSB is aware of a nationwide Tik Tok trend that is going around threatening violence at schools on December 17,2021. While there are no credible threats directed to any our our schools, we want you to know that we continue to monitor social media post for anything of merit.

We have no reason to believe that any issues are planned for our campuses, and want to reassure parents that we have systems in place to ensure student safety.

If, however, you and your child feel that it is in the best interest to remain off campus tomorrow, we will mark all absences tomorrow with a code of extenuating circumstances.

Again, we have no reason to believe that any issues will take place on our campus, but you ultimately can make the decision that is best for you and your family.

Thomas J. Byler
