BBB Warns East Texas about W-2 email scam.

Staff and Parents,

Please read!! The Better Business Bureau of East Texas has received reports that local school districts and businesses have been targeted with a "W-2 phishing scam". In the reports to BBB, an employee in the HR or billing department received an email claiming to be the Superintendent asking for a list of all employees and a copy of the W-2s issued. This scam, which previously targeted large corporations, has been hitting school districts, nonprofits, and tribal organizations.

If you feel you have received one of these emails, please let the BBB know. BBB can assist with victims of identity theft, as well as training what to look for to prevent this from happening in the future.

Spring Hill ISD will NOT request any W-2 information from employees using email at any time. Do not become a victim of this email scam. Never give out user names or passwords via email. In addition, if you click on a link make sure it redirects you to the correct website. If you think you have been targeted by one of these scams, please contact the technology department today.

Texans for Strong Public Schools

In the coming weeks, Texas legislators will be voting on school voucher legislation. Now is the time to amplify our voices and speak out against vouchers. It is important that lawmakers understand that protecting public schools is important to us.

Sending a letter to your legislators takes only a minute and can have a MAJOR impact!

You can send a letter in three easy steps:

  1. Visit Texans for Strong Public Schools and enter your home address so that your legislators’ names will appear for you.
  2. Use the sample message or write your own short letter asking your elected official to protect public schools and students by saying no to vouchers.
  3. Press “Send Letter.”

The future of public school education in Texas depends on Texans making our voices heard! Thank you for standing up for public schools!
