Fairfax County School Superintendent seeks parent support as the Tik Tok Challenge for the upcoming month of October becomes much more serious.

Dear Families,

We have been made aware of a series of new monthly challenges that have been shared across the social media platform TikTok. Last month the “Devious Licks” challenge emerged, and students committed acts of vandalism on school property. Now, these challenges are escalating and harming people.

Here is the full list:

September: Vandalize school bathrooms

October: Smack a staff member

November: Kiss your friend’s girlfriend at school

December: Deck the halls and show your *****

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

I want to be clear, these are not fun, harmless challenges. These are crimes with very serious consequences. Students who commit these acts face disciplinary action under the Student Rights and Responsibilities, and possible criminal charges.

Please continue to talk with your children about the serious nature of these acts and the consequences they will face if they participate.

I believe that by working together, we can make sure students and staff are learning and working together in a safe environment. Thank you for your support.
​​​​​​​

Sincerely,

Scott Brabrand
Superintendent
Principals across Northern Virginia are reaching out to Parents and the local community for help with recent school vandalism at local schools. TikTok videos are playing a role in the vandalism which suggests various monthly "pranks" for the 2021-22 school year. Parents and students are reminded to revisit the SRR 2021-22 Rights and Responsibilities concerning the implications of such conduct. Students are expected to respect school property. The damaging, stealing or vandalizing of school property can lead to serious School Disciplinary action including a Referral to the Division Superintendent.

If you, your child, or someone you know is facing School Disciplinary action as part of the TikTok craze contact the Sprano Law Firm for assistance.
