When it comes to the well-being of your children – our students – we can never be too careful.

That’s why I feel it is important to bring to light a new “meme” or “game” on social media that students in other countries have been exposed to since last year – and it has now shown up on computers in our region.

“The Blue Whale Challenge” involves the enticement of students into risky behavior that could result in the ultimate challenge of taking one’s own life. While we do not know of any students who have done that, we need to make sure that parents are armed with the information necessary to protect their children. We will do the same in our schools. We are checking computers and speaking with students to make sure that they are not involved or influenced. 

If you have any additional information about the game or know of any students who may be involved, please contact your child’s school counselor or my office so that we may offer help.
