Cedar Rapids Community School District Parents,
This weekend, the Cedar Rapids CSD identified a cyber security incident. To restore all systems as quickly and securely 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 scheduled.
As soon as CRCSD learned of this, CRCSD engaged third-party cybersecurity experts to help review this matter and take steps to ensure something similar does not happen again.
As part of the CRCSD work to restore all systems as quickly and securely as possible, CRCSD is suspending district summer activities for the remainder of this holiday week. This includes Scholar Camp, Kids on Course University and Champions summer programming. CRCSD apologizes for any inconvenience and looks forward to resuming regular district summer activities on Monday, July 11.
Again, we apologize and sincerely appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this matter as quickly as possible. Please visit our website for updates as they become available.
