Dear LCPS Families, Las Cruces Public Schools has become aware of a troubling post that has been shared widely this week on the social media platform TikTok. The post refers to a threat to school safety “for every school in the USA, even elementary,” on Friday, December 17. The post appears to be part of a national TikTok trend and did not originate in our school district. We have heard reports from other districts that the same post is circulating in their schools. While we do not believe the threat to be credible, we are closely monitoring the situation and taking it seriously. Additionally, the district has been in contact with the Las Cruces Police Department regarding the post. We may have an increased police presence in our buildings on Friday as an added precaution. This situation serves as a good example of why it is important to avoid sharing posts online that refer to school safety threats. Even if they are not credible threats, they can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety for our students, families, and staff. We ask our families to monitor their children’s social media activity and speak with them about proper behavior online. If you or your child become aware of any potential threat posted to social media or anywhere else, please notify a school staff member or trusted adult right away. As always, thank you for your partnership as we work to ensure a safe, secure, and positive learning environment for our students. Sincerely, LCPS Administration Estimadas familias de LCPS: Las Escuelas Públicas de Las Cruces (LCPS, por sus siglas en inglés) se ha enterado de una publicación preocupante que se ha compartido esta semana ampliamente en la plataforma de redes sociales TikTok. La publicación se refiere a una amenaza a la seguridad escolar el viernes 17 de diciembre "para todas las escuelas en los Estados Unidos, incluyendo la primaria". La publicación parece ser parte de una tendencia nacional de TikTok y no se originó en nuestro distrito escolar. Hemos escuchado informes de otros distritos de que el mismo correo está circulando en sus escuelas. Consideramos que la amenaza no es creíble, sin embargo estamos monitoreando de cerca la situación y tomándola en serio. Además, el distrito se ha puesto en contacto con el Departamento de Policía de Las Cruces con respecto a la publicación. Es posible que tengamos una mayor presencia de la policía en nuestros edificios el viernes como precaución adicional. Esta situación sirve como un buen ejemplo de por qué es importante evitar compartir publicaciones en línea que se refieran a amenazas a la seguridad escolar. Incluso si no son amenazas creíbles, pueden causar mucho estrés y ansiedad a nuestros estudiantes, familias y personal. Pedimos a nuestras familias que controlen la actividad de sus hijos en las redes sociales y hablen con ellos sobre el comportamiento adecuado en línea. Si usted o su hijo se dan cuenta de alguna posible amenaza publicada en las redes sociales o en cualquier otro lugar, notifique a un miembro del personal de la escuela o un adulto de confianza de inmediato. Como siempre, gracias por su colaboración mientras trabajamos para garantizar un entorno de aprendizaje seguro y positivo para nuestros estudiantes. Atentamente, Administración LCPS
