Racist Hackers Go After Local High School

Bishop Hartley High School’s school calendar was hacked and littered with racial and religious slurs pointed at African Americans and people of Jewish descent, according to Fox28.

The school calendar is provided to the school via a website called OneSchoolStreet.com, which facilitates school calendars for many schools across the nation. The website was hacked by an unknown person and its subsequent calendars provided to schools were compromised.

Bishop Hartley immediately took down the webpage that hosted the calendar and are just offering a PDF version of their calendar for now.

The company that manages the calendar is out of state, so the school did everything if could by taking down the calendar, but Tina Pierce, Education Chair with the NAACP Columbus chapter, said to Fox28 that there should be more parental notification when school security is put at risk.

The university said that all athletes were tested Monday before determining that the resumption was safe. 

“These young people come from across the nation and the world to be part of our Ohio State family, and we do everything we can to create a safe, healthy environment so that they have a chance to study and compete,” said Athletics Director Gene Smith. “Our medical team will continue to evaluate, and we will share decisions as we move forward.”

The Buckeyes have refused to say how many athletes have tested positive, but longtime beat reporter Tim May had said it was fewer than ten. 

OSU teams with athletes currently working out on campus are football, men’s and women’s basketball, field hockey, men’s and women’s soccer, and women’s volleyball.

According to multiple news outlets, including 10tv.com, the beleaguered Short North hot spot Standard Hall is once again closed temporarily after one of its employees allegedly tested positive for COVID-19.

The original Facebook and other social media posts that led to the news reports have been removed from Standard Hall's social media sites.

Standard Hall was one of the first establishments to reopen once COVID restrictions were lifted and was immediately one of the first to close due to violations. It reopened just three weeks ago.

The state does not require a restaurant to close after an employee tests positive but strongly recommends it. In this case, two other Corso Ventures establishments are reportedly closed because the same employee was within both places: the Short North Pint House and Short North Goody Boy. The now deleted Facebook post supposedly said they were closing all three for a short time to deep clean each of the establishments.

You can stay tuned for updates here or on Standard Hall's Facebook page.
