NAMPA — The Nampa School District’s network services, including internet, is expected to be down for several days following a malware attack.

School district spokeswoman Kathleen Tuck said district officials have been working to respond to the attack since Wednesday morning. She did not know how many systems have been affected; all Nampa schools are working without internet for the time being.

Tuck said school will remain in session. Teachers have been using pens and paper and blackboards in place of technology for their lessons, she said.

“Luckily we have ways of teaching our students that don’t involve the internet,” Tuck said.

Tuck said as far as district officials know, no personal information was lost in the attack. Teachers and other district staff have been asked not to use school devices. Instead, she said staff are using their personal devices, hotspots or Apple devices to access the internet.

An evaluation into the attack is ongoing, Tuck said.
