Hello Raiders, I write to you this morning with disturbing news of students finding it "a fun idea" to vandalize bathrooms. I'm attaching a link to an article describing this latest tiktok challenge. Please talk to your students about this topic and help them understand we find no humor in this. Our goal is to raise responsible, caring, hard working citizens that will be successful in life. While I've seen may "school pranks" in my career this one rises to the level of criminal activity. We've already had this happening in our district causing several hundred dollars in damage. When we catch the people responsible please understand that our response will be one of a serious nature. The people responsible for these types of things do not always carry the discriminatory label of a "troubled kid". They have been anybody, including those that staff and parents might consider "good kids" and it is difficult for parents to believe that their children could do such things. Social media encourages kids to do some pretty silly stuff...whether eating tide pods or causing damage. Please have a quick talk with your students about this inappropriate behavior. I'd rather you be proactive and talk to your students than have to deal with a negative disciplinary situation in the future. We have a great district doing great things for kids. I want everyone to feel welcome and safe in our district. This couldn't happen without the extraordinary communities that support our school. Thank you for being partners in your students education. https://foxillinois.com/newsletter-daily/tiktok-challenge-devious-licks-challenges-students-to-vandalize-school-bathrooms Regards, Dr. Todd Hellrigel
