The Reeds Spring school district has notified employees and families that it was the “victim of a sophisticated cyber attack” that involved the unauthorized access — and acquisition — of district and personal data.

They were told that names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, health insurance information and even class lists may have been obtained.

According to a three-page letter sent to the impacted families, the district discovered the “security incident” or data breach May 18.

The district launched an immediate investigation, which involved external cybersecurity professionals, and learned Sept. 28 that the incident likely occurred within a three-week window starting as early as April 26.
