The Manhasset school district has temporarily shut down its computer network after officials detected an unauthorized outage there.
In a message to parents sent on Tuesday, Acting Superintendent Gaurav Passi said the district had deployed information technology professionals to investigate after learning of the disruption that impacted the availability of some systems.
“While this investigation is ongoing, the district has temporarily shut down our entire district network, including courier services, out of caution,” Passi wrote. “It is not yet known how long this network outage will last.”
Passi said in-person instruction will continue and a tour of the college building and an open house through Zoom will be postponed until later this month.
“We appreciate your continued patience and support as we work to restore connectivity and bring our systems back online,” he wrote. “We will share further information as appropriate.”
The district declined to comment beyond what was sent to parents. A representative from the state’s education department said he was aware of the issue and wanted to contact the district for more information.
