We recently heard of a few concerning news stories and want to share the following resources with you. Some of you may have seen accounts of the "Momo challenge" and concerns regarding YouTube Kids in the news or via social media platforms. We have no indication that these topics have been widely discussed by students at the middle school, but we always want to be aware and prepared if the subject comes up. We will not be addressing these news reports at school. However, we hope these resources will be helpful for your own information and in case you feel the need to discuss this with your children. These are moments when we are reminded of the ever present need to help our students navigate the digital world.
Please do not hesitate to contact myself or your child's counselor if you have any questions or concerns.Mr. Matthew P. Poska
Beverly Middle School
