The Dawson Springs Independent School System (DSISS) in Hopkins County is warning families about a new scam soliciting monetary donations.

According to DSISS, a new scam is making its rounds in the community, and the scammers are posing as affiliates of the district.

The district said Monday that the scammers are asking for donations with promises that the money will go toward underprivileged individuals.

"It has been brought to our attention that there is a scam going on," district officials said Monday. "Our school district is NOT asking for monetary donations to give to underprivileged individuals."

The district's statement goes on to indicate that the scam is spreading on social media.

Anyone who receives any type of solicitation involving the school district has been asked the report it.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
