People visiting the Ottawa Catholic School Board's website, this morning, got an unromantic eyeful.

The website was hacked by someone using the name xCrotz.

The page shows a crossed-out Valentine’s gift and a rant against the romantic day.

The school board took down the website shortly after saying it was down for maintenance.

In a statement to CTV news, the board writes:

“Our main Board website was hacked.  Our school websites, intranet and all student and staff information systems were not affected or compromised in any way.”

“We hope to have the website up soon, we will be putting additional protective measures in place to ensure this does not happen again.”
