NO SCHOOL FRIDAY APRIL 2nd
Dangerous TikTok Challenge
Dear LSE families,
We wanted to make you aware of a dangerous social media challenge targeting children that have gained popularity once again. The “Blackout Challenge” (which has also been referred to as the “Pass Out Challenge” and “Speed Dreaming”) is a trend on social media apps, like Tik Tok, that encourages children to hold their breath and/or use household items to choke themselves until they lose consciousness.
We are asking all parents and guardians to have a serious talk with their children about the severity and danger of this challenge, as well as safe and responsible use of social media and the internet. Having open conversations with your children and family can promote trust, safety, and prevention. As always, encourage your children to report any concerning or inappropriate behavior to a trusted adult. Students are always welcome to talk to their teacher, school counselor, principals, etc., about any concerns, worries, or questions they may have.
If you or your children need additional support or information, please feel free to contact our school counselors:
303-360-0052 ext. 109
303-360-0052 ext. 201
303-360-0052 ext. 276
Should you or your child have a concern about someone’s well-being or safety, it can be reported anonymously via Safe 2 Tell (1-877-542-7233) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Colorado Crisis Services: www.coloradocrisisservices.org, Trained Crisis Counselor Hotline: (844) 493-8255 or text “TALK” to 38255.
Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership.
