Linn-Mar investigating distruption after computer systems impacted
MARION, Iowa (KCRG) - In a message sent to Linn-Mar staff, Superintendent Shannon Bisgard informed employees that technical difficulties will force the district to minimize visitors and staff in the building through at least August 7th.
The message stated that the district began “experiencing technical difficulties affecting the operability of certain computer systems” and that they were “working diligently with third-party specialists to investigate the source of the disruption, assess its impact on our systems, and restore full functionality as soon as possible.”
Viewers will recall a “cyber security incident” forced the Cedar Rapids Community School District to cease most of their operations for approximately a week back in July.
Linn-Mar Superintendent Bisgard stated that select daycares, teams, and activities will be allowed to use district facilities on a case-by-case basis.
The district also sent the following message to parents and families:
The Linn-Mar Community School District recently began experiencing technical difficulties, resulting in a disruption to certain computer systems. We are working diligently with third-party specialists to investigate the source of this disruption, assess its impact on our systems, and to restore full functionality to our systems as soon as possible.
We are keeping visitors to a minimum until further notice. Select daycares, teams, and activities will be allowed to use district facilities on a case-by-case basis. Our network and phone systems are currently down, but our online registration system is still available.
We appreciate your patience and understanding and apologize for any inconvenience.
