Schools across the state are warning parents and teachers about a new TikTok challenge. This one is called "Slap A Teacher Challenge," "Smack A Teacher Challenge" or "Smack a Staff Member on the Backside."

Last month, teachers were warned about the  "Bathroom Challenge or "Devious Lick Challenge."

That viral TikTok challenge encouraged students to steal or break something at their school, then post a picture or video of the item like a trophy.

October's alleged challenge involves an educator getting slapped. As of this writing, there have been no reports of an educator getting slapped, but school officials will be monitoring.
