Parents Email Account Breached At Kewaskum School

Washington County Sheriff’s officials say their preliminary investigation determined a parent’s personal email account was breached leading to threatening emails to parents of students in a class at Farmington Elementary School. One parent was communicating with the rest of the classroom families via a Yahoo email account and it is believed that email was compromised. That breach provided the suspects with greater details to personalize the scam towards the victims. None of the affected families suffered any monetary loss as a result of this scam. The investigation continues into the origin of the emails. Farmington Elementary is part of the Kewaskum School District.
