Parents Beware! The Texas School Safety Center has new resources available to assist you with the Blue Whale Challenge that may affect students. The Blue Whale Challenge is a newly circulating social media challenge that could lead to potential cyberbullying incidents, breaches in personal information, and suicide attempts, posing dangers to students. 
 
In early July, a Texas teen was believed to have died by suicide as a result of the Blue Whale Challenge.  
 
As a result, the Texas School Safety Center and ESC 12 developed resources for schools to utilize, in order to increase awareness and possibly prevent additional tragedies from happening as a result of the challenge. The resources for school personnel and parents include info-graphics and a handout that outlines how to identify if students are involved in the Blue Whale Challenge, prevention steps, and where to get help.
