Northshore School District servers hit by cyberattack Friday

Schools are staying open, but student data and other systems are shut down.

BOTHELL — A cyberattack at Northshore School District has shut down servers since Friday.

As a cautionary measure, the district shut down other systems. Currently non-operational are student data and business systems as well as some phone and voicemail services.

“It’s under investigation right now,” spokeswoman Lisa Youngblood Hall said.

The district is working with law enforcement and industry experts to restore the situation as quickly as possible, she said. There is no evidence at this time that any student, family or staff data has been compromised.

Outages will likely be several days.

Families and staff were notified on Saturday and updated on Sunday with steps they can take to communicate directly with their schools. The technology department devised solutions to support continued learning and business this week.
