Iowa State University classes canceled beginning at 1 p.m. today

AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State University has canceled all classes beginning after 1 p.m. today, March 1, due to severe winter weather. Classes will continue as scheduled until that time. (Classes that begin at 12:40 p.m. also are canceled.)

University offices will remain open. Supervisors are urged to accommodate employees who need to leave early for safe travel home.

Icy roads, high winds and a blizzard warning from the National Weather Service prompted the cancellations. The Iowa Department of Transportation announced it would be closing Interstate 35, north of Highway 30 in Ames.

A decision regarding the status of Friday's classes will be made later and posted on the university's web site at www.iastate.edu, as well as communicated to area media.
