Today all schools in Minnesota were informed of a potential national Tik Tok challenge threatening schools. This nationwide challenge has now affected us locally.
At one point today, a student in Morrison County reported that he saw a post on Tik Tok that specifically referenced several schools in our region as part of this national threat, and one of them was Pierz Schools.
At this point, Law Enforcement is investigating details into that report. Given that threat, and with utmost safety of our staff and students in mind, Pierz and a couple other schools in our area are taking action to close schools tomorrow. Our decisions for now are as follows:
Please continue to speak with your children regarding responsible social media usage and encourage them to report inappropriate behaviors. —Superintendent George Weber
