Announcements

  • As you are aware, the Morgan County School District is undergoing a cybersecurity incident that has impacted our network environment. All network systems have been affected, which includes our student and staff safety systems. The IT team as well as the network security company that was hired are working nonstop to fix the issues.
     
    While many of the systems are currently down we have been working with the Fort Morgan Police Department in order to be able to have school tomorrow, Monday, December 12, 2022. In conjunction with the two School Resource Officers that we employ, Chief Sharp has offered additional off duty police officers to be present at every school tomorrow. Thank you to the Fort Morgan Police Department!
     
    We want to be clear that student and staff safety is our number one priority. But we also want to be clear that there has not been any threat to any school or person in the schools, that includes staff or students. It was out of an abundance of caution that we cancelled school on Friday and with the hiring of off duty police officers for Monday.
     
    We are hopeful that all systems will be restored by Tuesday, but with situations such as this, we will not know until a later time. We will let you know more Monday evening regarding school for Tuesday.
    We will release information as we can and I apologize for the delay between updates.
     
    Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
     
     
    Como ustedes saben, el Distrito Escolar del Condado de Morgan está experimentando un incidente de seguridad cibernética que ha afectado nuestro entorno de nuestra red. Todos los sistemas de la red se han visto afectados, lo que incluye nuestros sistemas de seguridad para estudiantes y el personal. El equipo de Tecnología, así como la empresa de seguridad de la red que se contrató, están trabajando sin descanso para solucionar los problemas.
     
    Si bien muchos de los sistemas están actualmente caídos, hemos estado trabajando con el Departamento de Policía de Fort Morgan para poder tener clases mañana lunes, 12 de diciembre de 2022. Junto con los dos Oficiales de Recursos Escolares que son empleados por el distrito escolar, el Jefe de Policía Oficial Sharp ha ofrecido policías adicionales fuera de servicio para estar presentes en todas las escuelas mañana. ¡Le damos las gracias al Departamento de Policía de Fort Morgan!
     
    Queremos dejar muy en claro que la seguridad de los estudiantes y el personal es nuestra prioridad número uno. Pero también queremos dejar claro que no ha habido ninguna amenaza a ninguna escuela o persona en las escuelas, esto incluye al personal a los estudiantes. Fue por precaución que cancelamos la escuela el viernes y la contratación de oficiales de policía fuera de servicio para el lunes.
    Esperamos que todos los sistemas se restablezcan el martes, pero con situaciones como esta, no lo sabremos hasta más adelante. Les tendremos más información el lunes por la tarde sobre las clases para el martes.
     
    Publicaremos la información que podamos y me disculpo por la demora entre las actualizaciones.
     
    Gracias por su paciencia y comprensión durante este tiempo.
