DOE LETTER - HARMFUL TIK TOK TREND.pdf

Harmful TikTok Trend

Aloha AES Families,

The Hawaii State Department of Education is aware of the planned Tik Tok challenges that are circulating online, and we are asking families to help us shut these down quickly.

The latest trend on the social media platform encourages students to participate in monthly “challenges” involving vandalism, violence and other inappropriate behavior while at school.

The behaviors encouraged by these Tik Tok challenges will not be tolerated by our schools. These challenges have escalated beyond minor pranks and are serious offenses that can lead to severe disciplinary consequences. The Department is working closely with federal, state and county law enforcement. Offenders will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and face student disciplinary action.

Please help our schools by speaking to your child(ren) about the serious nature of these challenges and the repercussions that can result from participating. Even if your child doesn't have Tik Tok or isn't likely to be involved in this type of inappropriate behavior, please encourage them to relay this information to their peers or to speak to a trusted adult on campus if they become aware of any information about these challenges occurring at school.

Please see the attached letter from Superintendent Hayashi for more details.

Mahalo!
