Internet connections are down across all Arlington Public Schools.
Both the internet and email systems are experiencing an extended outage, APS announced Monday afternoon. The outage is not expected to be resolved before the end of the school day, APS said.
APS spokesman Frank Bellavia told ARLnow that the school system’s internet vendor is experiencing problems, and they believe that “some cables were cut somewhere.” He added that there’s no timetable for the problem to be fixed.
Anyone who needs to reach school staff is being to encouraged to call rather than email.
We are currently experiencing a system-wide internet and email outage. Our internet provider has identified the problem but does not believe that it will be restored before the end of the day. If you need to reach school-based staff, please call the school directly.
