Pranksters Hack New Rochelle High School Web Site, "Cancel" School

February 28, 2014 - 21:21

More excitement for New Rochelle High School students -- after bomb threats, snow days, student/teen porn sites, now they have school "cancelled" by a hacker.

School officials are still investigating how someone got into the schools e-Chalk site and created two "prank" announcements.

The first one was a calendar event purporting to cancel school today due to a teachers conference:

The Nyan cat video was a popular internet meme a couple of years ago:

Students reacted with mixed emotions to the prank. Not all responses are Safe for Work so be warned.

The New Rochelle School District has issued a statement:

The issue of the New Rochelle High School website being hacked.

Early this morning the District removed the content from public view and
has worked actively with our website content provider to secure the website.
