The Pittsburgh Unified School District is still recovering from a ransomware attack that took place over the holiday recess, but its superintendent says school is open for business.

Janet Schulze, Superintendent, Pittsburg (Calif.) Unified School District, told district members in a statement that students are welcomed back while the district’s IT department struggles to recover from a ransomware attack, but noted the kids may be getting an unexpected history lesson.

“We are all set for school tomorrow! We will be teaching and learning like "back in the day"🙂...without laptops and internet. Our schools have access to student information and our phones are working. We still are not able to receive email, so please call your child's school if needed,” Schulze said on January 6.
