    For Students:  "Believe in yourself!  Have faith in your abilities!  Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy."   -Norman Vincent Peale


    For Staff:  "With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift.  Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing.  You get to choose."  -Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

  • FEMA Disaster Fraud

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 2/7/2018

    If you've been affected by a recent natural disaster, has some called and asked you to verify your FEMA registration?

    Multiple complaints have been filed by people who have been scammed by thieves pretending to be employees of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).  These include survivors from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as victims of the California wildfires.

    • Victims have received phone calls asking them for personal information--even though they didn't apply for FEMA assistance.
    • When victims do try to apply for FEMA assistance, they discover that someone has already applied using their names because they receive a "verification error."
    • People claiming to be FEMA inspectors have been asking to gain entry to damaged homes. These individuals wear a shirt or jacket with the FEMA name, but they do not possess a FEMA photo ID badge.
    • Inspectors ask for money before starting an inspection. (Federal and state workers will never ask for or accept money.

    If you or someone you know may have fallen victim to or have knowledge of these types of frauds, visit the FEMA Disaster Fraud page for more information.
