An Internet Safety Message from Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. Ed.D.

Dear Parents,

We want to make you aware of what seems to be the latest viral challenge targeting children. It is called the Momo Challenge, and it centers around a disturbing character suggesting dangerous tasks for kids to perform. From what we have learned, these and other suggestions can also be found spliced into some YouTube Kids videos, including Fortnite and Peppa the Pig. This challenge also occurs through an app called WhatsApp, which could function on both phones and tablets.

We recommend that you talk to your child about these kinds of challenges, in a way that you feel is appropriate for their understanding. Given the connection and concern with messages within YouTube Kids videos, we also recommend that you monitor what your child is watching and screen the videos, even if they appear to be safe, to ensure their viewing does not include harmful messages.

The links below offer some information about the Internet hoax and resources to help you set rules at home:

o   Safe Search Kids

In our schools, we are aware of this trending issue and continue working to ensure students follow safe Internet use. Throughout the school year, our teachers reinforce the expectations for safe use and responsible practices described in our Student Digital Safety contracts.  They also use the Common Sense Media resources and our lesson bank to teach grade-specific digital citizenship lessons.

If you have any further questions, please contact your child’s school.

Student safety is our top-most priority—even when they are traveling between home and school.

As students become more comfortable about walking or riding bikes between school and home, we want to be sure they stay alert and safe. Please talk to your child about how to stay safe while traveling to and from school.

Some suggested reminders are:

1.    If possible, don’t walk or ride alone.

2.    Stay aware of your surroundings. Watch where you’re going and what is happening around you.

3.    Tell someone where you are going and when you will return.

4.    Use cross walks and obey traffic signals.

5.    Avoid strangers, and tell an adult right away if any suspicious people approach you.

Thank you for being our partner in student safety.
