Students Are Damaging School Bathrooms For Attention On TikTok

Antelope Valley High School District Schooos has fallen victim of the new social media challenge. The TikTok trend is destroying school bathrooms. Tiktok App have even taken notice and have taken this content off the app.

“We are alerting you to a new trend on social media called “Devious Licks.” This trend involves encouraging teens to “lick” or steal items from school, whether these items are soap dispensers, toilet seats, urinals, or more and then posting about the stolen item on social media with the hashtag, deviouslicks. Already, we have had 𝘁𝗲𝗻𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂𝘀𝗮𝗻𝗱𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗱𝗼𝗹𝗹𝗮𝗿𝘀 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝘁𝗵 𝗼𝗳 𝗱𝗮𝗺𝗮𝗴𝗲 across our District. Additionally, some schools have had to temporarily close restrooms due to the extensive amount of damage and the need for repairs before those facilities can be safely reopened.”

In response to this, we are increasing surveillance of our campuses and are currently reviewing camera footage. This is a very serious offense, and if a student is found to be stealing, being in possession of stolen items, or damaging school property (which also includes people’s personal belongings), the District will take appropriate action including:

--Disciplinary action.

--Seek reimbursement for the stolen and damaged items from the student or their family.

--Refer the student to law enforcement.

Please talk with your student about the serious consequences of participating in this trend, or participating in any other activity that involves stealing or damaging school property. We also encourage monitoring of students’ social media activity, as these types of social media challenges tend to involve risky behaviors of which students do not typically realize the serious consequences or threat to the safety of our schools and community until it’s too late.

Thank you for your assistance in helping to put a stop to this activity in our community.
