Social Media Monitoring

The purpose of this post is to inform you about the student “challenges” being shared throughout social media. As many students head into summer vacation, their well-being and safety remains a top priority, and as a Common Sense Media certified district in digital citizenship, we want to make you aware of specific “challenges” noted in an article published by www.commonsensemedia.org that have caused concern in many school districts.

According to the article, specific “challenges” are trending among teens, going viral on social media, and although “kids are watching these challenges on YouTube purely for entertainment…some challenges inspire kids to try them out themselves.” Attached is a letter  that includes some of the “challenges” we would like to make you aware of and to watch for during the summer season when your child is not in school.
