A Message from Superintendent Craig Tice regarding national TikTok threats

Dear F-M Families,

We are aware that there is a TikTok social media post circulating that warns about school shootings nationwide on Dec. 17, 2021. Law enforcement across the state have been reviewing the posts. While there is no direct or specific threat to F-M schools, we are working with local law enforcement to ensure the safety of our school community here remains our top priority. Our School Resource Officers and Special Patrol Officers are aware of the citation and will be vigilant tomorrow, as always.

You may consider taking the opportunity to talk to your children about the importance of sharing information they might have about potential threats to our students, staff or schools; any troubling behaviors being displayed by their friends and schoolmates; or any observations that they make of things that “just aren’t right” about what they see in their school. Working together is the best way to keep our community safe.

If you receive any information about this that you think requires immediate action, please call 911 to report it. If you have information that you believe the district should be aware of, please contact your child’s building principal or me as soon as possible. In the meantime, we will continue to keep you updated with any information that we receive.


Craig J. Tice, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Schools
