Searcy School District would like to inform parents and/or guardians that we have been made aware that some Internet sites such as Youtube and Google are experiencing a pop- up site within children’s games and animated shows entitled the “Momo Challenge”, which may cause scare and encourage dangerous behavior. At Searcy School District, we have blocked Youtube until the issue can be resolved. We have had some students who have seen the images outside of school discussing it with others, which has caused concern among other students. We would like for parents and families to be on guard if your child has access to the internet at home. We will continue to practice safe internet use and have discussion about internet safety at Searcy Public Schools, and we hope you will do the same at home. You may find out more information about the “Momo Challenge” at the following link. https://www.thv11.com/article/news/become-aware-central-arkansas-officials-warn-parents-of-momo-challenge/91-ba7acdb4-03ee-464f-8892-2663ecf71381
