School closings for inclement weather will be announced several different ways this year:
  • The BLACKBOARD CONNECT Notification Service will be used to simultaneously call all phone numbers associated with students and faculty. We will sometimes send emails and text messages. To update numbers or other contact information, call 458-4003 and leave a message.
  • If internet access is available, this page will be updated to reflect that school has been canceled. (https://sites.google.com/a/viola.ncsc.k12.ar.us/district-info/Home/school-closings)
  • Traditional television and radio stations will also be notified. Below is a list of some stations that we try to notify. Because of the convenience of the BLACKBOARD CONNECT service, this list is short.
