Parents of the Cedar Rapids Community School District,
This weekend, the Cedar Rapids CSD identified a cybersecurity incident. To restore all systems as quickly and safely as possible, we are implementing a district closure, suspending the district’s summer activities for the remainder of this holiday week, including district field trips. HS baseball and softball games will continue as planned.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this district closure may cause and look forward to the regularly scheduled activities resuming on Monday, July 11th.
As soon as we learned of this incident, we hired third-party cybersecurity experts to help us review this matter and take steps to ensure that something similar does not happen again. We are taking this action to be able to restore all systems as quickly and safely as possible.
Again, we apologize and sincerely thank you for your patience as we work to resolve this issue as soon as possible. Visit our website for updates as they become available.
