Community Notice: The Momo Challenge has surfaced again.
**Please note that researching this topic will produce disturbing/grotesque images.
"The “Momo challenge” is an internet suicide game where a grotesque female face gives instructions to use the messaging platform WhatsApp to communicate with a contact who encourages violence and ultimately suggests the user commit suicide." (Moore)
These clips are surfacing on many social media sites, including YouTube and Kids YouTube with the goal of tallying views/shares/likes.
Please join us beyond the school walls in conversation with our youth about using good practices online. We feel that allowing students' thoughts/questions to be heard is better than simply telling them not to engage in something.
Below, a couple of links have been provided, should you want more information.
