STAR TEST THIS WEEK
 
Teachers are administering STAR tests to students this week.  It is important that students are here at school, fed and rested, ready to perform at their best.  These tests will be used to measure growth from the beginning of the year.  STAR reports will be sent home with Trimester 2 report cards in mid-March.  Thank you for your support.

BE ON ALERT

FOLLOWING is an email scam that has occurred in one of our local parishes.
 
E-mail Scam
Please be aware of an ongoing phishing scam that involves emails purportedly from Father Robert. An actual sample is shown below. These are not from Father Robert and he is in no way associated with this email. Note the sender's email address is a gmail.com account. Father does not have a gmail.com account and would never ask you to email him so that he could ask you for a favor. It appears that the sender is phishing for valid email addresses and if you respond, the sender will follow up with a request for some sort of monetary assistance. In at least one instance, a request was made for gift cards. It's truly unfortunate that cyber criminals will attempt to exploit the generous nature of our community. There are common sense ways to avoid being scammed. If an e-mail contains an unusual request, contact the company (in this case, Father Robert or the parish office) directly. Do not use any phone number provided in the e-mail or click on any links in the email. In many, but not all cases, grammatical errors are present. For more information on phishing scams and email security, you can google (or search for) "recognizing phishing emails."
