Loudoun Schools Issue Student Safety Alert

© Leesburg Today - 05/23/2015

Loudoun County Public Schools on Friday issued an alert for parents to be aware of a social media trend that promotes self-injurious behavior, such as cutting.

""While this is not widespread, Loudoun County Public Schools is asking parents to be aware these messages are being circulated through social media. Parents are encouraged to check their child's social media accounts,"" the alert reads. ""If your child has been involved in such activities or knows of students who have been involved, please contact the administration of your school.""

The message also asks that students alert adults if they know of classmates experiencing difficulties. ""Expressing care for a fellow student is not betraying a child's trust.""
