The North Andover Public Schools and the North Andover Police Department has become aware of troubling posts nationwide that have been shared this week on the social media platform TikTok. The post refers to a threat to school safety "for every school in the USA," on Friday, December 17.
The post appears to be part of a national TikTok trend and did not originate in our school district.
At the December 2nd School Committee meeting North Andover Fire Chief John Weir, Police Chief Charles Gray, and Town Manager Melissa Murphy Rodrigues were in attendance, along with the Central Office Leadership Team, to deliver a School Safety Update to the committee and the community.
