The drawing will be held on the following Tuesday, February 16th.
Due to Covid 19, Valentines Day activities will be altered. We will not be allowing outside deliveries at school.

These will be student-only parties (sorry, no visitors). Only individually prepackaged items will be allowed and only one person will be handing these out.

There will be three teams playing tonight at the Longhorn Corral. We will NOT be clearing the gym as we did back in October. However, due to capacity restrictions, we ask that families consider leaving soon after there athlete's game is over, or waiting to arrive until their game is about to begin. This will help us to make room, while social distancing, for everyone who wants to watch their children's games.
The Viola School District will remain open for onsite learning between the Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks. We were officially notified yesterday that there are no plans for a statewide closure of schools. After Christmas, families will continue to have onsite and virtual options. However, we strongly recommend that students attend school in person, unless required to be quarantined. Because of masks and quarantine policies being implemented at school, research is suggesting that students attending school in person are less likely to contract COVID. Thank you for your patience and cooperation and have a great Thanksgiving!
