The Community School Corporation of Southern Hancock County was back online Thursday. But a cyberattack on the school district’s internet network prevented remote learning the previous two days in the first week of school. "To be unable to offer that right out of the gate is frustrating, especially frustrating knowing that this was a malicious attack on our system and not something of our own doing,” said Wes Anderson, CSC Southern Hancock County director of school and community relations.
