MAQUOKETA, Iowa– In a post on Facebook, the school district says all middle school students have been moved to the local YMCA after a note was found in the bathroom.

Middle school students are currently being moved to the YMCA due to a note found in the bathroom. Authorities, along with a bomb dog, will be at the building shortly.

The school says students who normally ride the bus home will still ride the bus home but will be picked up at the YMCA at normal dismissal time. Students who usually walk home will be dismissed from the YMCA at 3:20 p.m., to walk home. Students who get picked up by a parent can still be picked up at the YMCA at 3:20 p.m.

The safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. We do not take any things like this as a joke. More information will follow when it is known.
