Last week, the District began experiencing network issues that impacted phone and internet service throughout the day. After working extensively with hardware engineers, it is now believed that these disruptions are not due to a malfunctioning piece of equipment but rather an attack on our network from an outside source designed to overwhelm our network with volume. No student or employee data was accessed. Similar attacks have occurred across the country, including an area district a few weeks ago. Adjustments and hardware additions have been made to our system to mitigate the impact to our phones and internet, and the matter is being investigated by law enforcement agencies. Thank you for your understanding.
