ALGONA, Iowa (AP) - A body was found on school property in Algona, prompting officials to cancel classes while police investigate.

Algona Superintendent Marty Fonley told the Mason City Globe Gazette the body was reported to police about 1:30 a.m. Friday on school property.

Fonley declined to name the school where the body was found. He says no students, staff or teachers were involved.

Police say no foul play is suspected, and an autopsy is planned.

Police wouldn't identify the body until relatives could be notified.

Fonley says district officials decided to cancel classes Friday to allow police to investigate the matter.
