Dear Parents and Families,

Making sure that our schools are a safe place for students, staff, and visitors is our highest priority.

I am writing to inform you that we’ve been made aware of the nationwide Tik Tok challenge encouraging school threats. This post started a challenge to skip school on December 17th and it evolved to a challenge to threaten school safety on the same day.

Please know that there have been NO credible threats made against any school in Snowflake Unified School District. However, our district administration is working closely with the Snowflake-Taylor Police Department to monitor and respond to any potential threats. 

To be clear, any threat or dangerous activity in our schools is completely unacceptable, they will be fully investigated, and they will be met with serious consequences.

Snowflake Schools will be operating on a normal Friday schedule tomorrow, December 17th. 

If you or your child become aware of any potential threat posted to social media or anywhere else, please notify a school staff member or trusted adult right away. We would also ask our parents and families to monitor their children’s social media activity and speak with them about proper behavior online. 

As always, thank you for your partnership as we work to ensure a safe, secure, and positive learning environment for our students.


Hollis J. Merrell
