FBI Cyber Awareness for Parents and Caregivers of School Age Children. This public service announcement is intended to raise awareness for parents and caregivers of school-age children about potential disruptions to schools and compromises of private information, as cyber actors exploit remote learning vulnerabilities. If you experience a cyber incident, we ask that you contact your school's assistant principal, so we can track and assist with reported incidents.
The ALICE Recovery Fund has officially gone live and is taking applications for cash assistance from any individuals or families that have suffered financial hardship directly due to the pandemic. Please note the fund is specifically for individuals or families that lost their job or significant portions of their income directly due to the pandemic. If they cannot show that they lost their job due to the pandemic or claim they did but they lost their job in like December or January, they will be deemed ineligible.
