YES Prep Conduct 

We want to make you aware of a trend circulating TikTok called “Devious Licks” in which students vandalize restrooms and steal items from schools while videoing themselves to post on TikTok and other social media sites. Some examples include stealing soap dispensers, breaking the faucets, inappropriate graffiti, and wasting paper towels. 

To help us keep our campus safe and clean, we are asking that all parents talk to their students about the seriousness of this trend, and if they see anything occurring in the restrooms please complete an incident report immediately.

Students who participate in this trend or vandalize our facilities will receive the following consequences:

  • Immediate parent meeting with the Dean of Students to discuss consequences
  • Loss of transitions in between classes

 *Students ARE NOT ALLOWED to go to the RR with backpacks or cell phones, they MUST stay in the classroom.

We appreciate your support in this effort to keep our campus safe and clean so ALL our Explorers can focus on learning. If you have any questions, please reach out to me directly.

Sincerely,

Megan Zimmerhanzel

Director of Student Support
