Feb. 16, 2015. Due to the winter weather and snow forecasts through Tuesday morning, Appalachian State University has canceled classes and offices within the Town of Boone and Watauga County are closing early on Monday.

Appalachian State University canceled classes beginning by 3 p.m., and classes that let out later than 3 p.m. will release students at 3 p.m.

“Heavy snowfall is predicted for late afternoon; cancelling classes earlier allows AppalCART buses to complete their routes and get students and passengers home,” according to release from ASU. “A decision about Tuesday’s classes and operations will be announced no later than 6 a.m. Feb. 17.”

ASU encourages students, faculty and staff to check their emails; the university’s Twitter account at @appstateclosing; the university’s homepage and recorded messages at 828-262-SNOW.
