DES MOINES (AP) -

Officials have canceled afternoon classes at a Des Moines high schools after many staffers suffered from food poisoning, apparently by a catered meal.

Classes were canceled Thursday at Roosevelt High School and students were sent home early.

School district spokeswoman Amanda Lewis says the Polk County Health Department believes the staffers were sickened by a meal catered by two businesses.

The food wasn't prepared by the school kitchen and no students are believed to have been sickened.

Roosevelt Principal Kevin Biggs says classes were canceled because there were too few staffers to continue classes.
