Just like the computer malware attack spread throughout the system over a matter of days starting over spring break, recovering from the attack is also taking time. On the evening of Tuesday, March 22, Cloquet schools technology coordinator Yvette Maijala said she and other staff and service providers were about 75 percent done with classroom computers. They were making slower progress with getting systems (such as food service and the media centers) reconfigured because they involve more work with different individual vendors.
