Squid Game Trend : Not Appropriate for School Aged Children

It has come to our attention that some students are playing “Squid Game” at school and have been planning to wear the costumes of characters for Harvest Day. “Squid Game” is not appropriate for school-aged children. If you are not familiar with the movie, please visit https://www.commonsensemedia.org/tv-reviews/squid-game.

Students may not participate in any form of this game and they may not wear Squid Game costumes to school.

If your child has watched “Squid Game” (with or without adult supervision/permission), please discuss with them that the themes and topics within the show are not age appropriate and should not be talked about with peers without adult supervision.
