Tik Tok Sleep Challenge

Tik Tok Sleep Challenge
Posted on 05/05/2023

We have been recently made aware of a potentially dangerous Tik Tok Challenge that has been circulating on the internet. The challenge is called the “sleep challenge” or the “Benadryl challenge.”  The challenge is for students to take allergy medication and fight the effects of drowsiness/trying to stay awake. 

Additionally, the viral challenge encourages students to take pills from home and leave them around campus for other students to find and ingest.

Please talk with your student about the serious consequences of participating in this trend or participating in any other activity that involves ingesting pills or medication of any kind.  We also encourage monitoring of students’ social media activity, as these types of social media challenges tend to involve risky behaviors of which students do not typically realize the serious consequences or threat to the safety of our schools and community until it’s too late.

Thank you for your partnership in keeping our students and campuses safe for all. 

Please feel free to contact our safety department if you have any concerns.
