May is Mental Health Month. The intent of this observance is to bring awareness to growing mental health needs within our culture, and to fight the stigma associated with mental illness.  The Netflix series “13 Reasons Why” has brought national and local attention to issues related to mental illness and suicide.  Please take an opportunity to discuss the attached talking points with your children.  We need to work together to spread the message to our children that help is always available.

Dear Parents,

We can never be too careful when it comes to protecting our children.  A dangerous “game” surfaced on social media a while back, particularly with students in other countries. The game is being talked about by student in our schools. 

The “Blue Whale Challenge” app involves the enticement of students into risky behavior that could result in the final challenge of taking one’s life. While we do not know of any VUSD students who are playing it, we want to make sure that you are aware of it.

Evidently, it has been removed from the app store.  We are appreciative of members of the community who brought this to our attention; our children benefit when we work together to protect them.

Sincerely, 

Kim Forrest
