Dear La Conner students and families, We need your support!
Some of you may have heard of a recent “devious licks challenge” on the social media app TikTok where individuals are encouraging others to steal or damage school property. Students are stealing things from their campuses such as soap dispensers, towel dispensers, teachers’ personal property, and even COVID tests. This is happening nationwide, and our schools are also experiencing theft and vandalism as a result.
Please talk with your child about the very real consequences of this “challenge” and the negative effects of peer pressure sometimes found on social media. This is a good opportunity to discuss with your child appropriate technology use and being socially responsible. Please emphasize that any theft or vandalism to school property has consequences, including potential suspension, fines, and even criminal charges. Thank you for partnering with us to maintain our schools and help children understand how to respect school property. It is especially important now when custodial and other staff are working extra hard to maintain clean buildings with the increased risks from COVID-19.
