Warning about a new mobile app.
You may have heard something recently about a mobile app called “Yik Yak” that allows users to post comments anonymously. It uses location services to bring comments to a user’s Yik Yak feed from others in a similar geographic region. The possibility of cyber bullying and threats to the security of a school or location are increased because of the anonymity of the posts and responses.
The safety and security of our students is our first priority. It is the policy St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School that students are not allowed to use their phones (or other mobile devices) during school hours. This prevents students from having access to the Yik Yak app while at school. If possible, we will block this app, and others similar to it, from our server. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the users of these devices to use them appropriately.
In light of the ever changing world of mobile apps, we encourage you to talk to your children about the dangers that can occur from their use as well as checking your child’s phone for the Yik Yak app (or other similar apps). It is our advice to delete any questionable apps that you find.
