Tic Tok Challenges/Bathroom Updates

Parents we want you to be aware. The Tic Tok app that is very popular among students has created challenges for students to do in schools. These challenges are not positive. They range from stealing items from the bathrooms, vandalizing school property to the latest one being slap a teacher. All of the activities on this list are criminal actions and Tahquamenon Area Schools will involve law enforcement and press charges to those individuals who participate in these activities.


Update: 2nd floor bathroom is fixed and is open.


School is working to find the individuals that have caused the damage and the disruption to the school culture.

Seniors and Senior Parents

There will be a virtual FASFA (Free application for federal student aid) for those individuals who are trade school/college bound on October 13 at 5:30. I will have a financial aid advisor from a college there to explain the process and answer any questions you may have.
