Welcome to Chico Junior High School
A student in our community was hospitalized after engaging in what is known among students as “the eraser challenge” or sometimes called 'the scratching game'. As this rather innocuous sounding game resulted in a serious illness, we want all parents to be aware of some of the dangerous games which have gained popularity both online and in communities across the nation.
Please read this article from Webmd.com, which summarizes five of these “games” to make yourself aware of the details.
We encourage all parents to have discussions with their children about these and other activities in which students could inadvertently put themselves or others in danger.
