SALT LAKE COUNTY, Utah – The Salt Lake City School District phone system is working again after officials said a cyber hack took down  phone and online systems Monday.

The district said, ” Our district network was the target of a cyber attack where thousands of external systems coordinated to access our system at the same time. This attack is still affecting both systems.”

School officials said parents and students data has not been compromised.

Technicians are working to restore the services, including “Powerschool Parent” and “Student Portals,” as soon as possible.

Officials said parents should contact the district by email until the issues are resolved.
