AIA055It was a furry, four-legged computer hacker that wreaked havoc on the computer system for Verona schools for two days this week. The culprit was publicly identified by Superintendent Charles Sampson at last night’s Board of Education meeting.

The fiber-optic cable outside H.B. Whitehorne Middle School that became a squirrel’s chew toy has been repaired, and things were back to normal last night. Apparently so, since the Global Connect telephone alert system did its job in spreading the joyful news of today’s snow day.

  1. Same thing happened at Mountain Lakes Schools earlier this year. Turns out a section of cable right near the pole wasn’t adequately wrapped.
