    What's happening at Glenn Dale Elementary School

    School Based Budget Survey

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Prince George’s County Public Schools is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for all students. To this end, we want to make you aware of a potentially dangerous internet trend targeting young children called the “Momo challenge.”

    When using Whatsapp and YouTube, a scary avatar named Momo interrupts videos and challenges children to complete a series of bizarre and potentially dangerous tasks and upload evidence they were completed. On the final day of the challenge, children are encouraged to win the game by committing suicide. Children are threatened throughout the challenge with harm or sharing their personal information online if they do not complete the tasks.

    We are partnering with families to raise awareness. Please discuss the challenge with your child. Assure them the challenge is not real and they cannot be hurt by “Momo.” Use online safety practices that include not accepting invitations from strangers or taking part in anonymous challenges. We encourage you to allow electronic device usage in shared family spaces. Please monitor your child’s social media accounts and online activities, and install parental controls and filters.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 301-805-2750.

    Thank you for your continued support of Glenn Dale Elementary School.
