Email This Story






Though I am more inclined to make use of my school email than the average high school student, if one were to judge me by the amount of unread messages I have wasting away in my inbox, I would likely be deemed a massively popular person.

In reality, though I would like to nod my head and expound at length about my own popularity, a more accurate depiction of me would be as the unfortunate victim of a very pointed email spam campaign.

Luckily for me, I am not alone. This vicious spam campaign is something that affects the inbox of every student on campus. Its trauma-inducing grip on our collective student emails is so unfailingly strong that not only does it seem to provide students with daily emails about events that have been advertised to them in several different and more effective ways, but it also provides students with unfocused emails on topics only vaguely related to them.

It ranges from constant barrages and updates on the status of various high school happenings (which are either covered in the announcements or should really start being sent to our parent’s emails instead) to information concerning the fascinating nature of parent club meetings. While I’m sure parent club is all well and good, as someone who’s neither a parent nor curious about the goings on of a club that doesn’t concern me in the least, the only thing I can do is avoid those emails entirely.

Eventually, constantly finding new reports and notices for something that doesn’t relate to me in my personal inbox gets tiring. Besides that, having to choose between skimming through email after email to check whether or not one is of any relevance to me/will do more than summarize information I already have, or risking it entirely by deleting without reading, is a terribly time consuming activity.

Unfortunately, it seems like I can count on several new emails from RHS everytime I refresh the page. And believe me, those scant few seconds a day add up. There are better ways for me to waste my time.

While the well-meaning bullheadedness and constant daily upkeep and dedication behind sending these emails is impressive, it begins to seem pointless when they aren’t reaching the target audience, and instead, end up languishing, unopened in student inboxes around campus.

Maybe RHS ought to stop spamming us with these filler messages and save their system for the announcements that are actually important – but not necessarily time sensitive.
