Internet and email were down all day Thursday at the O'Gorman junior and senior high schools and at the six Catholic elementary schools in Sioux Falls. All systems were running again Friday.

Superintendent Tom Lorang wouldn't tell the Argus Leader (http://argusne.ws/Rymxnj) Friday night whether the hacker is a student or say how officials were able to identify the individual.

Sioux Falls Police say the situation involves a juvenile and couldn't confirm whether someone had been arrested.
