GFMS parent letter on TikTok trend

GFMS Families,

A recent topic trending among children and teens on TikTok is called “Devious Licks” where students steal objects and show off what they’ve taken in their own social media posts. Unfortunately, this trend has made its way into our school.

We have already had incidents of stolen items and vandalism that mimics the popular TikTok trend. This theft and vandalism will not be tolerated and is placing undue stress on our school staff who work diligently to ensure our campuses are clean and safe.

As a strong, tightknit community, we ask that our families speak to their children about social media, current trends taking place, and how these temporary fads can ultimately impact their future. We want nothing more than our students and staff to take pride in our school and respect the property.

Please know that damage and/or theft may be reported to local law enforcement and if our school staff determine who is responsible for theft or damage to our schools, there will be consequences.

Thank you for your support in helping us try and put this situation behind us as quickly as possible.
