The closure of the Victor Central School District to in-person learning is continuing into Wednesday.
The district’s schools have not been able to connect to the internet or regain phone service.
They were subject of a malware attack over the weekend, which forced learning to go remote.
At this point, district officials aren’t confident that internet will be back up-and-running this week, so if classes do return – it will be without internet and phone.
If schools have working phones – students in pre-K through third grade may return on Thursday. However, students in grade four through twelve will not return until Monday, February 8.
That’s assuming internet and phone services are returned by then.
The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are involved in an investigation into the attack, the District said. The investigation will take time, and officials are warning members of the community that there could be secondary infections of the malware.
Student and family information was not compromised in the attack. They noted that updates will be provided as the week continues.
