    Players are recruited to the game by being tagged on social media – primarily on Snapchat – and directed to download an app called “After School” or “Blue Whale Challenge.”

    An anonymous “group administrator,” known as the “the curator,” then hands out 50 challenges to the players that must be completed, documented and posted during a 50-day period. At first, the tasks seem innocuous but they become increasingly more harmful, such as players asked to wake up at unusual hours to watch disturbing videos, self-cut in the shape of a whale and take selfies while hanging off the highest rooftop they can find.

    The only way to “win” the Blue Whale Challenge is to die by suicide.

    To prevent players from withdrawing from the challenge, the “curator” threatens to blackmail and harm them and their families. The app, which cannot be deleted, can reportedly hack into a player’s personal information.o feel pressured into doing anything that makes them feel uncomfortable or unsafe.

    The department also recommends that parents monitor their children’s social media activities. Hashtags linked to the Blue Whale Challenge include: #BlueWhaleChallenge, #CuratorFindMe and #I_Am_Whale.

  • Netflix - Thirteen Reasons Why Season 2

    Springfield Parents and Families Good afternoon. Within the next few weeks, Netflix will release the second season of Thirteen Reasons Why. As you may recall, this series includes discussion and depiction of sensitive topics including suicide. It is rumored that this second season may also deal with a school shooting. Netflix provides a brief video disclaimer that states “if you are struggling with these issues yourself, this series may not be right for you.” We want to make you aware of this second season release as well as again provide talking points for you to have discussions with your child. School counselors are valuable resources for our students and may be contacted at any time if you or your child need assistance. Please reach out if you have any questions. School counselors are the following: Mrs. Rummer (Grades 7-8) Mr. Cursaro (A-J) Mrs. Weakland (K-Z) They can be reached by calling the school at (330) 798-1002.
