On January 15th we had suspicious activity within our Google Classroom domain. This occurred in the middle school classrooms so we felt it necessary to suspend all users. We will be working with the students to create new unique passwords to insure the safety of our students. We intend to have the new passwords accomplished this morning so that we are up and running.

Please be assured that there was never a threat or loss of personal information.

We hope this information provides clarity.
