Eraser Challenge Game

March 13th, 2015

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I want to make you aware of a disturbing game that teenagers across America are getting involved in. It is called the “ABC Eraser Challenge.” Unfortunately North Warren is not immune to this activity.

It has been brought to our attention some of our middle school students have engage in this very unsafe game. The Eraser Challenge requires students to take an eraser and begin “erasing” their skin while saying the alphabet, and coming up with a word for each letter. Once they get to the letter Z, they stop and then compare the injury to their friends. Most students use their arms to do this, from their hand to their elbow, however it can be anywhere on their body.

Please take the time to talk to your child about this so they do not get involved in this game. Hopefully they can also encourage their friends not to participate in this type of activity. If you see marks or scars on their arm please ask them about it. This game can lead to serious infection and scarring.

Please see the following video with more information. You can also find out more information on the internet.

Thank You,

Louis A. Melchor

Principal

Letter-to-Parents: “What are the Odds” Game

November 25th, 2014

Dear Parent/Guardian,

I am writing to inform you of a dare game that teenagers around the country are playing called, “What are the Odds.” This dare game places teenagers in potentially embarrassing and sometimes harmful situations. Teenagers are not the only ones affected by this game. Teenagers can play the dare game in a way that can also place adults in an embarrassing situation, or cause potential damage to property. Teenagers have also been known to videotape and post their participation in the game online.

Unfortunately, North Warren is not immune to this dare game. In recent days, we have discovered that some of our own students have participated in this game. Fortunately, we were able to prevent these students from continuing to engage in this game.

This is how the dare game is typically played. One person challenges another to an outrageous dare, prompting the proposal with the question: “What are the odds…?” The recipient of the dare must then provide a range of numbers, which demonstrates the likelihood that he/she would perform the request. A third person then counts down from three and listens as the other two people say a number that falls in the range previously provided. If the two say the same number, the dare must be executed — no if’s, ands, or buts.

We need your help in order to help ensure that this game does not continue in our school. We ask that you speak to your child about the dangers of participating in this type of dare game, or even acting as a bystander to the game. We do not want to see any student embarrassed, or placed in harm’s way because of a poor decision to participate in this type of activity.

We have notified staff of this game, including our School Resource Officer. We also made a school-wide announcement to students about our knowledge of this game, and the dangers associated with participating in the game. We also informed students that our Student Code of Conduct may be applied if we discover any student participating in this activity. We encouraged our students to not act as a bystander and to report any incidents they are aware of. We reassured them that the identity of students who report incidents will remain confidential.

The North Warren School District is a very safe and nurturing environment for all students. The entire faculty and staff are committed to ensure a school culture that encourages social responsibly, respect, sensitivity, and caring for everyone. Your children have developed into a community of learners that have a strong sense of belonging and are growing in their ability to work and learn together. This is what our school is all about. With your help isolated incidences like these, as unfortunate as they are, will be short lived.

If you have any questions about this letter, please do not hesitate to contact me at lmelchor@northwarren.org, or our Student Assistance Counselor, Mrs. Tina Ritchie at tritchie@northwarren.org.

Sincerely,

Louis A. Melchor

Principal
