The Lafayette Parish School System's main website, LPSSOnline. com, is back up and running this morning.

Last night, the site appeared to have been hacked.

At about 9 p.m. Sunday, viewers let KATC know that clicking on any of the menu options on the site took you to a login page referring to "Idiot BlackHat."

When we reached out to LPSS officials, they said they were aware of the problem and were working on it.

This morning, the site was back to normal. Officials tell KATC the problem was solved by 8:30 a.m. this morning.

The site that was down is just an informational and portal site; it does not contain any student or employee information. This site is entirely separate from that information.
