Huggy Wuggy and Rainbow Friends

We have had a few incidents of students talking about a character called Huggy Wuggy and Rainbow Friends. The names sound harmless, cute, and cuddly. However, through researching the characters, we have learned that they may in fact be very scary characters for our students.

We are sharing this information in case you hear it in your homes. After viewing some of the videos, we wanted to inform our parents so you are aware of these characters and what they represent.
