MEMO: TiKTok Challenge – December 17, 2021

December 17, 2021

Dear Students, Parents, and Staff,

I am writing to make you aware of a concerning message on the social media platform, TikTok.  The posts communicate that there is a challenge to call in various threats at schools within the United States.  At this time, there have been no local, credible threats made in our region and no threats relating specifically to any MSAD 1 schools.

Members of the MSAD 1 administration have been in contact with the Presque Isle Police Department and we have had an increased police presence in some of our schools this morning.  We will remain vigilant in our schools and encourage parents, community, students and staff to report anything suspicious or concerning to a trusted adult, school administrator, or the Presque Isle Police Department.

We appreciate your support in keeping our students and staff safe.

Sincerely,

Ben Greenlaw

Superintendent
