All Baltimore County Public Schools were forced closed on November 25th due to a network issue that was caused by a ransomware cyber attack. The BCPS technology team is working to address the situation however for the time being there are precautions you need to take in your home. The Teachers Association of Baltimore County is telling parents to leave computers off and not turn it on until they hear back from BCPS. They also said the system is infected.
City Schools is aware of computer network challenges today in Baltimore County schools. Students participating in virtual learning should only use City Schools-issued laptops or devices. Students without access to a City Schools-issued device will be granted an excused absence.
