E-Mail Outage Update

E-Mail Outage Update

Posted October 28, 2014

The district is finalizing the e-mail migration to the Microsoft Office 365 platform. We anticipate having new e-mail services in place by end of day Wednesday, October 29th and will begin activating staff in the new mail system at that time. Parents should continue to contact schools by phone to communicate with principals and teachers until new mail services are fully established. We apologize for the inconvenience of this current outage.

District 96 Email Outage

District 96 Email Outage

Posted October 27, 2014

Over the weekend, the district experienced two power outages. The outages impacted several district internal systems including Email, Security Camera / DVR and Teacher Websites. Currently all systems are back online with the exception of Email.

Given the level of damage that was sustained, the outage could last for several days. The full extent of the damage is still being assessed. The district is in the midst of a migration to a new Email system. The current outage has accelerated this migration process and a revised project plan is being developed.

Parents should contact schools by phone to communicate with principals and teachers until mail services are restored. We apologize for the inconvenience of this current outage.
