Pam Spalding, the administrative assistant for the Marion County Board of Education, sent an email Thursday afternoon regarding the One Call Now system that is used to notify teachers and parents of school closings.

According to the email, there was a glitch as a result of "update maintenance" performed Dec. 14. The email reads that Lynn Williams from One Call Now called to apologize for the glitch that meant some parents and teachers were not notified of the school cancellation Dec. 16.

The email concluded, "Please inform anyone who comments on the situation that it was totally out of the school district’s hands." 

Marion County Schools are also closed Friday, Dec. 17.
