Aberdeen School District warning of phone scam for Fall sports calendar

Aberdeen High School Principals Rocky Rocquin and Sherri Northington are warning the community of a new phone scam claiming to be fundraising for a school sports calendar.

The school district reports business owners are being contacted by a company named Sports Media from Salt Lake City, Utah, requesting funds to participate in a 2014 Fall Sports Calendar for Aberdeen High School.

Aberdeen High School does not have a contract or agreement with this company to produce a sports calendar for our school.

Rocquin said “Our school sports calendars are created by our Yearbook staff. All communications to our community requesting sponsorship will be made directly by our staff and students.

Community members are always welcome to contact school officials to verify a fundraising effort. For information, call the school at (360) 538-2040.
