Des Moines Public Schools has canceled all classes for Tuesday after officials took the district’s internet and network offline Monday morning following what they described as “unusual activity” that was later determined to be an apparent cybersecurity attack.

The district issued an announcement Monday afternoon saying offices will be open but staff may be working remotely and services limited.

Athletics and activities are currently scheduled to take place, the district said.

On Monday morning, the district was alerted to a “cybersecurity incident” on its technology network, the statement said. As a preemptive measure, the school district’s internet and network services were taken offline for investigation and assessment.

“Because many technology tools that support both classroom learning as well as the management and operation of the school district are not available at this time, the prudent decision is to close the district for the day,” the statemetn said.
