Q. I joined over a month ago and haven't received any information. What's wrong?
A. Please check your spam or junk folder. Many ISPs filter bulk mail. Be sure and "white list" texastechparents.org in your email server. (In email settings, "whitelist" means "to add to a list of authorized senders".) Log in and review your profile or bio. Make sure your email is accurate.

Q. I have heard of a service that helps stranded students. Can you tell me more?
A. Road Raiders Safe Travel Network is unique and one of our most valued services. And it's all parent volunteers!
