TikTok Challenge/s



Just Fyi,

The TikTok Challenge where destroying the bathrooms at school seems to have returned. It's mostly students dumping their milk cartons, squirting ketchup packets, and clogging the toilets with paper towels. A soap dispenser was ripped off of the wall in one of our bathrooms. Some of our schools have seen high levels of vandalism in their restrooms. We ask that you please discuss this issue with your child. We are now having to take a staff member away from their normal position to stand near the restrooms at lunchtime. Our custodians are taking extra time to clean the restrooms, taking time that is allotted to clean classrooms and buildings. + Do not think because your child doesn’t have TikTok (or social media) that you don’t have to talk to them.

These challenges are being discussed in locker rooms and busses and lunch tables and text messages and everywhere in between.Instead, start an ongoing dialogue letting them know how this behavior impacts the entire school and how their school has to allocate resources to try and prevent and as well as rectify any damage that has been done. Try to remain non-judgmental and instead ask questions like, “Why do you think your classmates are doing this?” or “How does this make you feel when student's are intentionally affecting "our" community?

WRAP leaders will walk WRAP students to pick up items. Pick-up in auditorium. This will be the only date before Thanksgiving to pick-up items.
