Social Media Concern for Students.

Cloverleaf Middle School Families,
Recently, there has been a resurgence of a game known as the Blue Whale Challenge. Students are tagged on a variety of social media sites and are sent invitations to play the game.  The game promotes self-harm through daily tasks that the students are directed to complete.  

In the interest of safety and concern for our students and community, I want to make you aware of this potentially dangerous trend.  For additional information please view the following link from the Ohio Department of Education that highlights the Blue Whale Challenge.  At this time, I have not been made aware of any specific cases in Cloverleaf.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call me at (330.302.0202) or our Guidance Counselor at (330.302.0209).
