Dear Parents and Caregivers,
We are notifying you because we were alerted that one of our educational resources Edmodo was recently hacked.
Edmodo is a classroom collaboration tool used by many educators throughout the world.
The hack compromised student and teacher accounts by disclosing usernames and passwords for sale.
The manner in which Plainfield Public Schools uses Edmodo did not disclose any personally identifiable information of teachers or students.
I have advised teachers who currently use the service to immediately change their passwords and their students passwords in the event the account was compromised.
To date, there are no specific indications or evidence that any of Plainfield Public Schools accounts were included in the hack.
Additional details of the hack are in the link below:
Plainfield Public Schools treats the privacy of your students with the utmost priority.
You will be notified immediately if there are any changes in our discovery of this situation.
A letter from Mr. DiPietro, Mr. Worth, Mr. Gagnon & Mrs. Hutchinson
