NEENAH – Neenah School officials were unsure if students could resume classes this week after a security incident in the technology system forced them to close the school on Tuesday.
With no working phones affected by the security breach, administrators considered it unsafe to hold the school in person. And given the associated internet and software failures, a virtual school was impossible.
Local and state law enforcement officials continued to investigate the incident Tuesday, although few additional details were reported by the afternoon.
The incident began around 5:30 a.m. on Monday when the district’s technology team received calls detailing emails and other software programs.
