Tik Tok Challenge

The district has recently learned of a TikTok challenge that may take place on Friday. It is our understanding that the challenge encourages students to make threats of shootings, bomb threats and violence against schools.

The Okolona Police Department is aware of the social media challenge and we are working with them directly. As a result, you may see an increased security presence at schools.

Our intent is to be transparent by sharing information with you, especially when it involves school safety and security. While we understand that this event is only a rumor, we also know that social media is a powerful tool often used to influence others. It is always important to remain vigilant when it involves these types of threats and challenges.

The district takes threats even those on social media seriously. If someone or a student is found to be engaging in any of these behaviors, we will follow the district code of conduct, which could result in school disciplinary action, as well as possible intervention by law enforcement.
