Dangerous Social Media "Challenges"
Positive and negative challenges are omnipresent on social media, and there has been a recent increase in teens finding "suicide challenges" on TikTok and other social media websites. These challenges are dangerous. Recently, the "chapstick challenge" and "Blue Whale challenge" have been circling in schools south of the cities. We want our students to stay safe, so please reach out if you are concerned about your student, or notice any unusual behavior. 

If you are concerned about your child's immediate safety, please call 911.
