Agario Issue

Our students have been playing a game during their computer free time called Agario. From what we can tell, it a game played online and they are able to play with other players on the internet. We noticed today that players can put unsavory language on the game with no censorship. For this reason, students will not be allowed to play this game in school during their computer free time. Please discuss with your child the importance of not using their school computer for games that could be considered vulgar.
