Our executive vice president recently received an email which purportedly came from our president.
Here’s what the email looked like:
From: President first name<email@example.com>
Date: February 5, 2019 at 6:49:38 AM PST
Subject: Hi VP first name
Are you available at the moment?The board need some gift cards for donation….can you get some today?If Yes Kindly get back to me quickYou will surely be reimbursedThankspresident first name
- the reply-to address firstname.lastname@example.org is not an email address we recognise
- the subject was personal, referring to our correctly VP by her first name
- it was “signed” correctly with our president’s first name
- it was asking for gift cards
It seems quite a bit of research went into this phishing scam. Please be careful with these types of emails.

Back to School packets should be sent out to your home around August 10th. You should have received a letter from the Principal with back to school events, and know that your student’s schedule should be available to them on Infinite Campus now.
