Delayed Start Time for DBQ Schools Today; On-Line Threats to Blame

Dubuque schools were put on a two-hour delayed opening schedule today(Mon) and the district’s morning pre-school was canceled, after someone made an ongoing, on-line social media threat against some Jefferson Middle School students.

In a Facebook post last(Sun) night, Dubuque school officials said a number of students from that one school were threatened; no other schools were referenced.

The district is working with Dubuque City Police on the investigation.
