The Lancaster County Career & Technology Center was made aware today of an emerging trend on TikTok and other social media platforms of threats to schools across the country for Friday, December 17, 2021.
As of this afternoon, the LCCTC has not heard of any specific threat to the LCCTC, its students, or staff. We still must take any possible threat to our students and staff very seriously. The safety of our students and staff is paramount. The LCCTC will be on alert for any indication of any threat to students, staff, and the school.
This current trend conforms to other social media “challenges” that have appeared throughout the school year encouraging vandalism or stealing in school. This reckless use of social media leads to unwarranted fear in the public and unnecessary expense to the schools.
Should you or your student hear of any type of threat to students, staff, or the school, please communicate it to a teacher, your campus principal, or a CTC administrator right away. We also encourage families to discuss of the appropriate use of social media with each other.
Again, we have heard of no specific threat to our school at this time, but the LCCTC will remain vigilant for any threats to our students and staff. Should any credible threat emerge, we will send out appropriate communications as needed.
Thank you and be safe.
