Parent Alert for YikYak App
Yik Yak has been marketed as a way to get live feed of what is going on and share thoughts while keeping your privacy. In reality, it is an "anonymous" app where students often bully others and is causing havoc across the state with students using this app inappropriately. It is popular in colleges and has unfortunately been used at Central Lyon in the past. Please be aware that it is not as anonymous as the app indicates.
Central Lyon has requested geofencing to disable the app within the radius of our building, but be aware that kids can access this app elsewhere. Please remind your children to keep social media posts "Light, Bright & Polite."
Cick here to watch short, informative video.
