FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 28, 2019
An Important Message from Superintendent Jacquelyn Martin
We would like to alert you to an alarming internet game, the Momo Challenge, that is currently targeting children and young adults around the United States. The Momo Challenge has caused concern among schools and parents across the country due to the disturbing nature of the game and the characters involved.
The Momo challenge is a game found on platforms including YouTube, Facebook and the app WhatsApp. It features a frightening character asking viewers to perform tasks that may harm them and provide photos as proof. The Momo threatens those who do not perform the tasks. Some of the challenges suggest performing them while in school. I encourage you to review the information and tips for parents by clicking on the link:
We urge you to monitor your child’s use of social media and the internet. We also ask that you remind your children not to accept any invitation to play an online game from an unknown person or number and not to click on unidentified links.

It should read "(v1.11)" in the upper right-hand corner. If not, you may need to refresh the web page to get a new copy (or clear your browser cache and try again).
