TODAY: Eastern Iowa school district closed after request from law enforcement

Posted: Updated:
CRESCO (KWWL) -

The Howard-Winneshiek Community School District posted to their Facebook page, saying they are closed today. 

The district says they got a call around 6 a.m. this morning from police requesting a two-hour delay this morning because of a potentially dangerous situation. This was to keep students and buses away from the situation. Because the school district was already having an early dismissal, they decided to cancel classes. 

The school's superintendent tells KWWL this was not any type of school-related threat. He says police say this involves an issue elsewhere in the community of Cresco.
