"Momo Challenge" Information

PDF version (English and Espanol).

February 28, 2019

Dear Families,

Southbridge Public Schools would like to make you aware of potential Internet-based danger called the Momo Challenge which may encourage children to engage in harmful acts.

Children can be exposed to this challenge by using the following Internet-based apps, Roblox, Minecraft, or WhatsApp.

We have taken steps to prevent access to these web applications while on school grounds.

Additionally, it has been widely reported that YouTube is a source of the Momo Challenge. However, YouTube has released a statement saying they have found zero evidence of Momo-related clips on YouTube Kids.

Please reach out to me or your children’s school if you have any additional questions or concerns.
