Baltimore County Public Schools will start their Thanksgiving holiday a day early. The school system had to close its virtual learning setting unexpectedly on Wednesday, Nov. 25 after a network outage. The BCPS site is down this morning and everyone have been advised not to access the school laptops or go to the BCPS website as Baltimore County Government has confirmed BCPS has been a victim of a ransomware attack.
Mychael Dickerson, Chief of Staff for Baltimore County Public Schools, released a statement on Twitter.
“Due to issues with our network, all Baltimore County Public Schools will be closed today, Wednesday, November 25, 2020. Additional information will be shared as it becomes available.”
