Peel District School Board says it’s in the process of getting back to normal operations after a cyber security incident on Jan. 26 that resulted in the encryption of files and systems.
Releasing a statement on Twitter Thursday evening, the PDSB says there’s no reason to believe any personal or sensitive information has been compromised.
It says virtual learning environments have not been affected and classes will continue as normal.
The statement reads if the investigation determines any personal or sensitive information was at risk, It will notify those affected as soon as possible.
One parent told 680 NEWS they could not access the online learning for some time on Tuesday, causing confusion for parents about if classes were cancelled or not.
The PDSB website is still down as of Thursday evening
680 NEWS has reached out to the board for comment.
