Officials in the Grain Valley School District want to make sure the public is aware of a scam in the community.

During the past several weeks, outside businesses have been attempting to sell advertisements under false pretenses. These advertisements are for things such as spirit items and poster schedules for sports.

Because of the growing problem, all future advertising for schedules, sports programs and other activities will be done through the Grain Valley School District’s activities department. No outside companies are authorized to sell advertising for any school district program.

For more information, contact Jeff Tebbenkamp, activities director, at 816-847-5041.
