Cumberland County Schools Requests Help from Public Regarding Dangerous TikTok Challenges
The district is aware of the dangerous social media challenges that have been taking place across the country. We are requesting assistance from parents, family members and the community to discourage behaviors that promote destroying school property, breaking into buildings, stealing and disrespecting others. These behaviors are currently being promoted and encouraged as a challenge to young people via TikTok, a popular social media platform.

Not only can these TikTok challenges cause major disruptions to classroom instruction and learning, but participating in them may result in juvenile or criminal charges, in addition to consequences under the Student Code of Conduct. Some students may view these challenges as harmless pranks, but we are asking parents and caregivers to discuss the seriousness of these behaviors with their children.

As a community, let’s all work together to remind our children and teens about the importance of valuing their school and taking pride in a safe and healthy learning environment.
