Hempstead Bomb Threat Deemed “Not Credible”

Some graffiti in a bathroom sparked a bomb threat investigation at one of Dubuque’s high schools on Wednesday. According to an email sent to parents of Hempstead students, the writing was found on a bathroom wall by a student, who then reported it to school staff. Based on guidelines from the Iowa Department of Public Safety, the school and Dubuque Police have determined that the threat is not credible. Classes at Hempstead operated on their normal schedule the rest of the day yesterday, and are expected to continue as usual today.
