Community Support and Safety Notice After Tornado

Updated 5/31/24, 1:16 pm

Good morning,

As many of you know, we have woken up to the devastating aftermath of a tornadic event. Many in our community have lost their homes, loved ones, and any sense of normalcy. Please know that VVISD is fully committed to supporting our community and surrounding areas during this challenging time.

If you need assistance or want to help the recent tornado victims, please contact Cooke County VOAD at 940-612-5323.

Please keep VVISD and our school community in your thoughts and prayers.

James Womack

Superintendent VVISD
