Griggsville-Perry School District hit by ransomware attack; early dismissal

KHQA reported yesterday:

The Griggsville-Perry School District in Pike County, Ill., has been the victim of ransomware hackers who are holding files hostage in return for a ransom.

While administrators and staff deal with the fallout, schools in the district will dismiss early on Thursday and Friday. Shuttle busses will run at noon, and dismissal will be at 12:15 p.m.

The early dismissal comes after the district had already canceled classes on Tuesday and Wednesday to try resolve the issues.
