The timeline: Records show the immediate aftermath of the cyber attack on Rochester Public Schools

Post Bulletin

ROCHESTER — It was 4:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 6, 2023, when an IT worker first flagged the cyberattack on Rochester Public Schools.

That was the beginning of a damage-control process that would continue on for more than a month and which is still, technically, underway.

The situation that RPS eventually confirmed to be a ransomware attack forced the district to cut off its virtual networks to mitigate the damage and restore its operations. That, in turn, caused the district to announce it was canceling classes for a day to allow the staff to deal with the situation.
