Orbeez Parent Letter
Attention Parents

April 28, 2022

Dear Giles High School Families, 

Giles High School has been made aware of a disturbing trend on Tik Tok. Youth across the country have been posting challenges that involve the use of an Orbeez Gun. Several teens across the nation have been arrested for incidents involving what seems to be an innocent toy, so please take the time to research some of the TikTok challenges your child may have been exposed to, such as the “Orbeez Challenge.”

Beginning April 28, 2022,  Giles High School will consider the possession of any of these “guns” anywhere on school property as a violation of our policy JFCD. Giles High School is taking this very seriously, so please share with your child the seriousness of this–that he/she could be suspended, expelled, as well as, subject to legal action. 

As always, we want to provide you with information concerning the trends that students are exposed to, and we want to work with you on preventative measures for our students.  It is regrettable that there are those who would prey on our children through social media, and I thank you in advance for having a conversation with your child about this new threat.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions and concerns.
