We recently received an alert that Missouri school emails are being actively targeted by a phishing campaign, purporting to be from PSRS/PEERS.  Please be cautious of any unexpected email and look to verify the sender and links are legitimate before interacting with the email. If you doubt an emails legitimacy, please report it using the Phish Alert Button (for complete directions on how to find the Phish Alert Button look here: Phish Alert Button - Email Directions (1).pdf 

While email communication from PSRS/PEERS is not uncommon, and should be expected, this phishing campaign shows some signs of being questionable.  

Below is a redacted copy of the email that's been seen.
