VICTOR, N.Y. — The Victor Central School District will remain closed Tuesday because of a ransomware attack that encrypted and knocked out access to its servers.
The district's internet and phone systems are all down.
The school's superintendent addressed the attack in a phone recording sent to families.
"No personal or financial information for students and staff has been compromised. In addition, student grades have not been compromised," said Dr. Tim Terranova, Victor CSD superintendent.
The attack does not affect assigned Chromebooks, Google Classroom or Gmail.
Terranova sent out a statement to parents and guardians in the school district on Monday updating the district's status.
"In person school will be closed on Tuesday for the Blue cohort because our Internet functions are still down, including our phones. Staff will continue to work from home and all students, Pre-K-12, will have assignments through Google Classroom that they will work on starting tomorrow. Your child's individual building leadership will have more information that they will send this afternoon about tomorrow's learning experiences. Private and parochial students as well as students with disabilities in out of district settings will be transported again tomorrow. I am planning on updating the community in more depth on Tuesday regarding the situation and plans for the rest of this week."
