Earlier this afternoon, school districts across Minnesota were notified by the Department of Public Safety about a TikTok trend that emerged targeting Friday, December 17, as a day of threats of shootings and bombings in schools. Based on law enforcement interviews, Little Falls Community Schools was specifically identified in a TikTok post related to this threat. In conversations with local law enforcement, the origins of this threat remain unknown. Therefore, school throughout the district is canceled tomorrow, Friday, December 17. All home events and activities are canceled or postponed both tonight and tomorrow. All district buildings will be closed as well while the investigation into the origin and validity of the threats continues. Little Falls Community Schools takes the safety and security of our students, staff, and families seriously…and it is prompting this action.
I hope you can understand and support our actions.
