Our school district received information from the Minnesota Department of Education today regarding a trend happening nationally on TikTok, a video-focused social media platform. The challenge is for the user to report a false threat to a school. A link to the email from the MDE can be read by clicking here. We encourage you to be vigilant with your child regarding anything they may see or hear on social media. Our best defense is with our students, families, and community to report anything unusual or alarming they may see or hear. As of this email, there has not been any “threat” made to Perham Schools but I felt it necessary for you to be aware of the issue and possibly have a conversation with your child(ren) on how dangerous this “challenge” can be for them and their school.
Please take care and thank you for your continued support.
Perham Schools Superintendent
