FRAMINGHAM – The Fuller, Cameron and Walsh middle school principals sent emails to parents to request they talk to their kids about a TikTok challenge that involves stealing from their schools, including the brand new $98 million Fuller school on Flagg Drive.
“We are asking for your help in putting a stop to a TikTok challenge called ‘devious licks’,” wrote Principal Kerry Wood.
The TikTok challenge asks “students to steal various objects and cause mischief.”
“Over the past three days, we have had numerous bathrooms vandalized, classrooms rearranged, and items stolen,” said Principal Wood in an email to parents.
The trend originated with user @jugg4elias, who shared a video of himself taking a box of disposable masks from his backpack on September 1, adding the caption: “A month into school absolutely devious lick.”
Principal Wood asks parents to talk to their children about this and to help put a stop to it.
“Fuller is a great place and to see a small group of students vandalize and disrespect our building is sad and disappointing,” wrote the Fuller Principal.
“Thank you for talking to your child about this issue. Walsh is a great place and to see a small group of students vandalize and disrespect our building is sad and disappointing,” wrote Principal Pat Johnson.
