NOLA Public Schools Offers Support to Public Schools Amid Statewide Cyber Attacks

NEW ORLEANS - (Aug. 1, 2019) – NOLA Public Schools (NOLA-PS) is communicating with local public schools to make sure they have measures in place to prevent a potential cyberattack and that each of our schools are following the critical action list set by the Governor’s Office.

Late yesterday, July 31, 2019, NOLA-PS learned that Morris Jeff Community School experienced a cybersecurity breach. School officials confirmed to the NOLA-PS Administration that the school immediately shut down its network and has been following state recommendations moving forward.

In a communication to school community members yesterday, the Morris Jeff school administration stated:

“Yesterday, a single user on a single device experienced a security breach which was quickly isolated. No student information was compromised. Our network technicians are assessing our network, making adjustments, and will reboot our systems in phases. Internet on campus is temporarily disabled. Staff email access and campus phone service will be intermittent. Our team is working quickly to bring all systems back up to speed as quickly as possible.”

As a precautionary measure, the NOLA-PS Administration continues to be in close communication with the affected school and all schools. The school district has procedures in place to monitor any suspicious activity and protect its Central Office systems.
