Originating in a phishing attack in which the log-in credentials of around 50 staff members were compromised, hackers used the information to mine social security numbers, names, dates of birth, mailing addresses, home addresses, phone numbers, health information, attendance data, legal notices, parent and guardian information, benefits information, payroll information, and more.
