Letter from the Superintendent-Blue Whale

 

—Posted by: Kristina Repp, Updated on:May 12, 2017

Once again I find myself in the position of sharing what I consider a potential threat to the safety of our children. "Blue Whale" is a social media challenge that "encourages young people to...complete a number of challenges over a 50-day period, such as watching a horror movie or harming themselves. An anonymous taskmaster monitors the group's members. Each task becomes increasingly harmful, until the final challenge, when they are told to take their own life."  

I am including a link to a news article, though information is easily obtained by conducting an online search. This article is from BBC news in the UK. Frankly, the news articles I found from US based sources provide links to so much inappropriate and unrelated material, I was uncomfortable sharing them.  

As always, I am available should you need assistance or additional information.

13 Reasons Why

 

—Posted by: Kristina Repp, Updated on:April 20, 2017

Parents and colleagues have contacted me this week about Netflix's "13 Reasons Why", a drama based on a novel of the same name by Jay Asher. The story depicts a high school student who kills herself and leaves behind audiotapes detailing events that led to her decision to end her life.  Though the series is receiving some acclaim, it is proving equally controversial among mental health professionals. A link to an article that recently appeared in the Chicago Tribune follows:

It is highly likely that your older child is aware of this series, and may have viewed it.  There are many references to this series, both positive and negative, currently on
