Late last week, according to News 5, Coventry Local Schools District noticed a data-stealing virus identified as a "trickbot" on the district's network. 

As a precaution, Coventry Schools Superintendent Lisa Blough announced that the entire district would be closed Monday, May 20th. 

As of early Monday afternoon, the FBI has reportedly been contacted to assist with the investigation into the source of the virus. The News 5 report goes on to say that while it doesn't appear that any school accounts have been compromised, two teachers' personal Amazon accounts have been accessed. 

The district has reportedly frozen all of its accounts as a precaution. 

As of early Monday afternoon, Superintendent Blough said that they were "nowhere near" having everything corrected.
