Attention Please!  Important Parent Information about Momo Challenge
Attention Please! Important Parent Information about Momo Challenge
Important Information about "Momo Challenge"

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I would like to take this opportunity to address a recent social media challenge directed at children and young adults, called the “Momo Challenge”. I am urging all parents and guardians to become aware of this challenge and monitor their children’s use of social media and the internet. The “momo Challenge” can be found on Facebook and/ or through the “WhatsApp” and is very alarming. The communications through the “Momo Challenge” begin with a chat that asks the receiver to perform small tasks and then escalates to more serious violent acts, and even self-inflicted harm, requesting photographs for proof.

In collaboration with our School Resource Officer (SRO), social media risk will be addressed through him, our school counselor, and the school administration. As always, safety of our students is of the utmost priority.

Below you will find some links to help address Internet safety:
