(Updated at 9:40 a.m.) Arlington Public Schools students and staff were unable to connect to the wireless network at schools this morning.
The system-wide outage impacted in-person learning, as well as distance learning for students whose teachers were unable to connect their devices at school.
In a School Talk email to families, APS said it was working to fix the technical difficulties.
The APS wireless network is unavailable at all school sites this morning. This impacts all in-person staff and students who use wireless devices to access APS network services.
Distance Learning students will not be affected unless their teacher is unable to connect their devices. We are working to resolve the issue. Once the problem has been resolved, we will notify staff and students.
We apologize for the inconvenience.

By 9:20 a.m., the issue was resolved, APS said.
“The APS wireless network service inside APS buildings has been restored,” said a subsequent School Talk email. “Thank you for your patience while we worked to resolved the issue.
