CARY, N.C. (AP) - A Wake County high school principal has told parents that the school’s computer system was hacked and some grades were altered.

Local media outlets report Panther Creek High School Principal Camille Holmes Hedrick sent a letter to parents Thursday saying the grades of a few students were impacted and that their parents have been notified.

Hedrick said that for all other students, all academic data, including SAT and ACT scores, GPAs and grades, was not affected. She added that class ranking was impacted for most seniors.

Hedrick said the school planned to contact and send corrected transcripts to the universities and colleges of students who sent or uploaded inaccurate documents. She didn’t say how or when the system was hacked, or how the school was making its system more secure.
