A phishing attack is a fraudulent message purporting to be from a reputable source and encouraging you to reveal personal information – such as passwords and financial details. These might appear to come from an official district account, so please be careful about the messages you open. 

It is very important that you do not click any links, open suspicious attachments, or respond to these types of emails or texts, and never supply personal or bank details to people you do not know.

Scammers use these email or text messages to trick you into giving them your personal and financial information. But there are several ways to protect yourself.

  1. Protect your computer by using security software.
  2. Protect your cell phone by setting software to update automatically.
  3. Protect your accounts by using multi-factor authentication.
  4. Protect your data by backing it up.

The District will never ask you to confirm your login and password or ask for bank details or personal information by email or text, so any that you receive asking you to confirm this information is bogus.
