Patterson Stazione Exxon made a donation recently. They wrote and received a grant to donate to the school. Funds are being used for testing, meaning many of our students will be able to earn college credit while still in high school. We appreciate our community stakeholders. Shown with Principal Lane Larive are member of the Student Council.
We appreciate you supporting our students in their athletic pursuits. Please remember that social distancing of at least 6 feet is required in all high school stadiums and gyms, but people who live in the same house may sit together. Masks must also be worn while in attendance of any function. Social distancing and masks are also required for away games. These are the requirements from the Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) for schools to have fans at their games. Not complying with these requirements may result in denial of admittance or removal from the event. Thank you for your continued support, patience, and understanding.

It has been over a year since COVID-19 made its first appearance in our area. In response to thevirus, we have adapted to new daily routines to help stay safe and healthy: keep your distance, wear a mask, and wash your hands. A few months ago, several vaccines becameavailable, and the scammers of the world saw an opportunity. Because of these quick-thinking scammers, our new daily routines should also include keeping a watchful eye on our bank accounts and personal information and making smart decision when it comes to sharing personal information.
“Fraudsters are always looking to take advantage of significant world events. The COVID-19 pandemic and its corresponding rapid digital acceleration brought about by stay-at-home orders is a global event unrivaled in the online age,” said Shai Cohen, senior vice president of Global Fraud Solutions at TransUnion.
According to Colleen Tressler, the scammers’ newest attempt toswindle your personal information involves sending phony vaccine surveys. Ms. Tressler is with the FTC’s Division of Consumer and Business Education and in her article, she states that these opportunistic scammers are sending emails and text messages with links to surveys. These surveys appear to be legitimate, but it is all an elaborate ruse to steal your personal data. Her advice to avoid being scammedis simple:
Do not click on any links or open attachments.
Do not call or use the number in the email or text.
Do not give out your banking account, credit card, or personal information.
In the same way that we are vigilant in protecting our health, we must also be vigilant in protecting our financial and personal information. Just like viruses, scammers are out there looking for a weak spot to capitalize on – inoculate yourself against these scammers by keeping your information private.
