RAPID CITY, S.D. — Rapid City Area Schools are alerting parents of a possible new scam, though no reports of it has been made in the district.

Parents across the state report they are receiving letters or emails from their child’s school district, stating they are requiring the student to be tested for COVID-19. The letters go on to request information like social security numbers and dates of birth.

RCAS say school districts will never ask for information this way.

If you have received documentation from your child’s school and are not sure, be sure to contact the school district directly.
