A Message from our Superintendent

Dear Sycamore Community School District 427 Community, 

This morning the District discovered some of our internal technology servers have been the victim of ransomware. District staff is working to determine to what extent any information was compromised. 

Upon immediate review, the District’s staff has determined the District’s email system, phone system, website, student information systems (Infinite Campus), and building alarm systems were not a part of this ransomware and are fully functioning. Additionally, District-owned Chromebooks and information stored within the District’s Google Suite for Education is not a part of this incident.

We continue to review any information that may have been compromised and will provide updates as this investigation continues.
