The attempted attack Aug. 9, about two weeks ahead of the school year’s start, was directed at San Dieguito’s Aeries Parent Portal. There has been no data breach, according to the district. Student enrollment and registration processes have been extended.

Work is expected to continue through the weekend. San Dieguito is collaborating with the San Diego County Office of Education on restoring the system, the district stated.
