CEDAR RAPIDS — A cyberattack discovered over the holiday weekend has caused the Cedar Rapids Community School District to suspend summer programming until July 11, the district said.
Its announcement did not describe the nature of the attack or say which systems it targeted.
“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,” the announcement said. “HS baseball and softball games will continue as scheduled.”
Among summer programming, the district provides activities that hold field trips to help explore new interests for students and that focus on building math, reading or writing skills.
The district said it consulted cybersecurity experts “to help review this matter and take steps to ensure something similar does not happen again.”
