Dear Parents/Guardians:

Over the past two days, we have had students coming to school upset over an internet video called the “Momo Challenge”.  The "Momo Challenge" is a hoax Internet challenge, which was spread by users on Facebook and has now spread to other media outlets such as youtube, Tik Tok, Fortnite and Roadblox.   It was reported that children and adolescents were being enticed by a user named Momo to perform a series of dangerous tasks including violent attacks and even suicide.
Please continue to monitor your children as they utilize the internet, and reiterate to them that this is not real!
Sincerely,
Sean Dunphy

Today at approximately 1:45 our fire alarms sounded and the students exited the school as we have done for fire drills in the past.  The reason for the alarm was a leaky pipe. Our fire department came and cleared the building to re-enter. All the students were back in the building by 2:00.


Thank you and have a great evening! Sincerely, Sean Dunphy Principal SAES
