Internet service restored at Edmonds School District after two weeks

The Edmonds School District experienced an internet and technology outage due to ‘suspicious activity' detected in its network on Jan. 31. 

After over two weeks, service was restored on Feb. 13. 

Starting Tuesday, Feb. 14, all students need to bring their Chromebooks to school for a password reset and system restore. Secondary students need to also bring their ASB card, the district said. 

"In order to assist with the resetting of student passwords, high schools will operate on a block schedule Tuesday, Feb. 14 and Wednesday, Feb. 15; and middle schools will operate on a block schedule Thursday, Feb. 16 and Friday, Feb. 17," the district said in a note to parents. 

The district said phones, fire alarm systems, HVAC systems and most building intercoms were still able to operate without internet during the outage. 

It's unclear what the ‘suspicious activity' detected was.
