BEEVILLE, Texas — Coastal Bend College is closed for the rest of the week.

The move comes after what they're calling a "possible cybersecurity threat.”

According to a post on the school's Facebook page, a "network disruption" affected their phones, website and other systems.

The campus has been closed since Monday and will stay that way through Friday.

The school says a leading cyber security firm has been hired to help and that they are still working to restore normal activity.

It also sent another Facebook post late this morning assuring all students that due dates for class assignments and payment plans have been extended. The new due dates will be given as soon as the school returns to normal operations.
