Baltic Families,

 We would like you to be aware of a concerning trend that has turned up in local schools. A challenge on the social media platform TikTok encourages students to steal or destroy items at school and then post a picture or video of the item as a "trophy." We have not yet experienced this trend, but we would like to be proactive. Theft and vandalism have school consequences that include suspensions, financial restitution, and the loss of privileges. These cases will also be referred to the police for charges. Please talk with your student(s) about this trend and make your expectations known to them. We have beautiful facilities in our district and many hard-working staff who take pride in keeping them maintained for our benefit.

 Thank you for partnering with us to keep our schools and students safe.

 Baltic School District
