Dear Allenstown Families,
There is currently a trend on social media called the “Momo Challenge”. Momo is a ghoulish looking avatar that is embedded in the videos and challenges kids to complete harmful and dangerous acts in a threatening way (such as to go commit suicide). Some of the places that these videos have popped-up include; Minecraft, Youtube, Fortnite, Facebook, and WhatsApp. Please be diligent in monitoring your child’s social media interactions and gaming and I encourage you talk with them about this and general internet safety.
At school, internet safety is addressed with students and we encourage them to immediately tell their parents (or any other adult) if they have any experience online that makes them uncomfortable or unsafe.
