Online Safety

Parents,
It has come to our attention that The “MOMO” Challenge has resurfaced.  There have been news reports concerning this and some students have started asking questions about the content. We would like to provide you some information regarding this social media account that can be found on Facebook, YouTube, and WhatsApp.  We are monitoring this closely at school and will continue to focus on online safety.
