We have NOT heard of any of our students participating in this challenge. However, we want parents to be aware of the dangers of the app. you can read a news article about it. The app challenges young users to 50 dares including self-harm and a final dare to commit suicide. It began a year ago in other countries and has recently made its way to the United States.
