The Hays USD 489 school district experienced a cyber attack on Thursday.

The district in a message to parents today said:

Last week, the district learned of a disruption to our operational systems. We immediately engaged cybersecurity experts to help us investigate and resolve this disruption. As we have worked through this issue, we are taking steps to prevent something similar from happening in the future. Classes have continued as normal for our students and staff this week, but some of our services were temporarily disabled for a period of time. We are hoping to have all of those services restored as quickly as possible.

Hays Post reached out to the district Friday and again Tuesday. It would not confirm what specific systems had been affected or what steps were being taken to resolve the issue.
