Just got an email from the secretary at the school. This might apply to a lot of people. Thought I would pass it along! Here is the limited information I have.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND FOLLOW THE PROCEDURE TO BE SURE YOUR TWIC IS VALID.
Yep, big problem. Here’s the story:
To - Members, Vessel Personnel & Safety and Vessel Security Committees:
Bad news on the TWIC front. Back in October, there was a power failure
and the computers that store TWIC information were affected. TWIC cards
that were issued before October 21 of last year may be invalid now.
The Transportation Security Agency is going to contact card holders, but
you can initiate the process yourself. Here’s the steps:
When the prompts begin, press 3. When you get to that menu, press 2.
That will get you in touch with a real live person.
Tell them you are checking on the status of your TWIC. They will need
the following information:
Date of Birth
Location of TWIC Center where you got your card.
It did not take terribly long to do this. You will be notified when
your new card is ready. You must return your old card. There is no fee
as long as you return your old card. If you do not have it, you will be
charged the lost card fee - $60.
