Security Awareness Alert - December December is upon us and the holidays are here! This time is well known for good food, spending time with loved ones, and snazzy gifts. Did you know that cybercriminals love Christmas too? Seriously, it really is their favorite season. During the holidays we're all shopping on new sites, receiving all kinds of promotional emails, and seeing advertisements pop-up everywhere we look online. For cybercriminals, this creates the perfect environment to take advantage of regular folks like us. I don't know about you, but a cyberattack is a present that is best left unwrapped! Take 3 minutes this holiday season to protect yourself and your crew. You'll be smarter and safer in minutes! https://adesandbox.arkansas.gov/iframe...

New Mena School Board Zones have been drawn and the board approved those new zones at their meeting on Tuesday.. According to the latest census Mena’s population now exceeds the 10% minority threshold. This means that board zones will be required in the future. In December, the two at large members from the two zones with two current board members will be determined.
