Dear Staff and Families:
We are reaching out again about the disturbing, new trend that has begun on TikTok, the video-sharing social media platform. The trend encourages students to engage in, record videos, and post these behaviors as "challenges" which are dangerous, destructive, and in some cases, criminal in nature.
TIKTOK'S SCHOOL CHALLENGES LIST
According to a list that's circling TikTok and Twitter right now, these are the planned challenges for the rest of the school year.
• September: Vandalize school bathrooms
• October: Smack a staff member
• November: Kiss your friend's girlfriend at school
• December: Deck the halls and show your balls
• January: Jab a breast
• February: Mess up school signs
• March: Make a mess in the courtyard or cafeteria
• April: "Grab some eggz" (another stealing challenge)
• May: Ditch day
• June: Flip off in the front office
• July: Spray a neighbor's fence
Here at Frankford, we want our students and staff to take pride in their school and show respect for this amazing place. Behaviors such as theft, vandalism, and assault will not be tolerated in our school and are currently placing undue stress on our students and school staff who work diligently to ensure our building is clean and safe. We are also facing some financial impacts just from the bathroom challenge.
We are sharing this information with all Frankford Township families in an effort to be proactive and engage your children in important conversations about the kind of school we want to attend and the character we expect from all of our students. It is important that our students understand any participation in these actions will not be tolerated and law enforcement will be called if necessary.
We appreciate your help in reinforcing the seriousness of this message and are hopeful that together we can prevent our children from becoming prey to this appalling trend.
