Students at the University of Colorado may have had a glimmer of hope that their spring break had been extended after receiving a fishy email on Sunday.

The email, sent from a Gmail account, was allegedly from the email account of Deb Coffin, vice chancellor for student affairs on the Boulder campus. The subject line read "ALL CLASSES CANCELLED - Extended Spring Break."

CU spokesman Ryan Huff said the email went out to a few hundred people and there was no breach of email security.

Unfortunately for students, Huff also said the email was fake. Classes resumed today as planned.
