Working Together to Address a Current Online Trend

Dear DPM Parents and Guardians,

By now you may be aware that schools nationwide are experiencing the consequences of a viral TikTok challenge called “devious licks” that encourages students to vandalize or steal school property and then post videos or pictures of the damage they have caused on social media. TikTok has since banned the videos and related hashtags but the trend continues.

Over the past two weeks, our school bathrooms at DPM have been subject to significant acts of destruction, forcing us to close some of those facilities. This vandalism is not only costly, labor-intensive, and inconvenient - it is illegal... please use this link to read the entire communication.
