To the parents, students and families of CHS
It has come to our attention that a potential predator is utilizing Facebook Messenger to solicit inappropriate photos from students in surrounding districts. From what we have been told, the individual(s) make contact through Facebook to both male and female students under the premise of being interested and/or “liking” their profile and pictures. After a few exchanges, students are then asked to send photos of themselves, often escalating to inappropriate and/or sexual photos to the solicitor. These photos are then used to blackmail and further solicit acts from students under the threat of exposure.
We do not at this time have any reason to believe that this has happened to a CAPS student; however, we believe it is important to raise awareness to this potential threat.
Please talk with your child about this situation as well as the dangers of social media, particularly around sexting, child pornography and cyberbullying.
Unrelated to this issue, we are hosting two (2) parent information sessions from Assistant Prosecutor Johanna Carey and Detective Chris Piskor this Thursday, May 4th at the Cadillac High School media center at 5:30 PM and 6:30 PM focusing on raising awareness around sexting, social media and cyberbullying.
