The Perry Community School District — comprised of the high school, a middle school and an elementary school — serves about 1,800 students, its website says.

Thursday was scheduled to be the first day of classes for the new semester, according to the district’s calendar. CNN affiliate KCCI reported that classes at Perry High School have been canceled for the day.
