So I don't really know much about this, but they said on the announcements while in class for the teachers. They said to not even click and any emails with attached files. The janitor is looking into the problem. But they don't use outlook and use gmail. Really makes me wonder.

Damn, that hi-tech janitor...:lmao:
But seriously, you should listen to the advice they gave you and if you are not sure whether or not your device's been infected, do a full scan on it.:)

They should mark the mails as SPAM in Gmail. This will help with detection in the future.
