Computer virus shuts down schools in Cloquet

When you want to promote broadband, it’s hard to share a story like this – but it’s part of the game. A computer virus shut down schools in Northern Minnesota. It does point out how integral computers already are to education. It also makes the case for an increased focus on cyber security. According to CBS Local

A computer virus is to blame for shutting down a Minnesota school district this week.

According to Northlands NewsCenter, the Cloquet Public Schools superintendent said the district’s computer system sustained a virus attack on Thursday.

The virus ended up prompting the district to close school for the day.

Superintendent Ken Scarborough said it’s the first time he remembers anything like this happening to the district.
