We would like to make you aware of a Social Media trend that is taking place across the country and has impacted McAlester Public Schools. "Devious Licks" are when students vandalize the restrooms and/or steal items (soap dispensers, toilet seats, etc) and post videos/pictures on Snapchat and TikTok. This has caused a lot of damage at McAlester Public Schools over the last two weeks. The monetary cost to the District is a concern, but even more so is the fact that some of our students are willing to destroy their school in order to follow a trend on social media.
If you are in a position to help, please do so by talking to your child about respecting their community and classmates. Our goal is to provide a safe learning environment for all of our students and staff and work very hard to ensure our District is well-maintained. Thank you in advance for partnering with us to ensure the best education for your child.
