OPELOUSAS – The St. Landry Parish School Board technology department became aware of a possible cyber threat as of 8 a.m. this morning. We immediately notified all district personnel to begin a shut down of all computers and servers.
In addition, we have contacted The Louisiana Department of Education and the State of Louisiana for assistance with assessing any damage related to the cyber threat. The assessment is ongoing and no timeline has been established regarding its completion. Schools will remain open at this time, and all schools can be contacted by telephone.
The following activities or professional developments have been canceled:
-Biology Hub Training (Thursday)
-ELPT Testing Meeting (Friday)
We will continue to provide pertinent information to our stakeholders through our district Facebook Page and through local news media outlets.
