October is Cyber Security Month
This month, Sheldon ISD launched a simulated phishing email to the district employees. Everyone received a fake email from “Fedex” with what could have been a harmful link embedded in the email from the Technology department.
More than 10% of the district not only opened the email but also clicked on the harmful link. This is great reminder that we need to continue to treat all external emails as potentially damaging ones.
- All @sheldonisd.com emails will not be marked as 'External.'
- The SISD Technology department will never ask you to go to a website to authenticate your credentials.
- Forward a questionable email to the Technology department (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be validated.
- Notifiy the Technology department immediately if you believe you have clicked a link in what could be a harmful email.

Election Day Polling Information
You might notice more traffic as well as police presence for added security measures and to assist with traffic. To ensure voters have limited access to the building, we have added extra measures of safety including a single monitored entrance separate from the student entrance to the school. There will be no interaction between students and voters throughout the day. The school day will operate as normal. Please let us know if you have any questions.
