BRENHAM ISD ADDRESSES ‘DEVIOUS LICKS’ TREND

  

Brenham ISD is alerting parents after a viral trend is causing destruction at schools across the United States.

The “Devious Licks” challenge on the social media app TikTok shows students posting videos of themselves stealing or destroying items at school, frequently in bathrooms.

In a statement this (Wednesday) afternoon, Brenham ISD said it is aware of the trend, and reported an incident at Brenham Middle School where two soap dispensers were removed and thrown in the trash.

Brenham ISD says it has “zero tolerance” for vandalism on school grounds and will discipline students engaging in this behavior.  It adds, “We are disheartened that a trend destructing school property, a place where students and staff members spend a significant amount of time, has become a source of entertainment.”

The district encourages parents to talk to their children about social media and the consequences of this type of behavior.

 

Full statement from Brenham ISD:

Brenham ISD is aware of the ‘Devious Licks’ trend circulating on social media. We were saddened to learn of an incident at our middle school where two soap dispensers were removed and thrown in the trash. Any vandalism on school grounds is taken seriously, and students will be disciplined. Brenham ISD has a zero-tolerance for this type of behavior. We are disheartened that a trend destructing school property, a place where students and staff members spend a significant amount of time, has become a source of entertainment. 

Fortunately, in Brenham ISD, our Cubs have demonstrated that their campuses are a place of pride. We take pride in having the best learning environment possible. In the halls that fill our campuses are students getting creative and working hard to fill the learning space with Cub Pride. However, we do want to take this time to encourage parents to talk about social media and the seriousness of this type of behavior and its consequences.

  1. It would be a joy for every school across the country and every parent that gives two cents file a law suit against any social media platform that displays and displaying is advocating harm to the minds of undeveloped children and tax payer funded entities.

    1. That’s too much like right. I hope people realize that gen Z is out of control and tik tok/lack of parenting/constant internet use is driving that?

      People claim that millenials are the worse. I’d rather deal with a complainer than someone stealing my belongings or a kid that disrespects everyone.

    2. I say that grandparents and parents take the lead and get off social media themselves, especially Facebook!! Get back to interacting with your kids and quit having a digital babysitter. Don’t complain about how today’s kids behave and not take some responsibility for the raising they have received. That’s the ONLY way that this type of behavior stops. Schools are not there to train kids to behave. Lawsuits don’t teach kids to get off these apps that are detrimental, but your example of not using them does.

      1. Just like illegal drugs, they exist because they are allowed to exist. If something is addictively harmful to our children, do you not Kill the creators and traffickers of it by whatever means necessary, including the use our national defenses. Or do you let the child fight the battle alone. Because alone they are when temptation comes and most are setup to fail by their unwise elders. I was only being nice with my initial comment.
        Yes, model behavior starts at home however, we now have to recreate the environment for a family and parents from all walks to thrive in the first place. It has been destroyed by head in sand gullible thinking. You offer a solution however your solution failed atleast two decades ago and we are now moving into intergenerational disfunction. The knowledge to correct is now gone. The classroom that is the institution of the family, has to be remade.
        Please don’t defend something that is vile by passing the buck to what you know has already failed due to our frailty.
