Saturday's (Dec. 9) administration of the ACT, scheduled to be given at McNeese State University, has been canceled due to inclement weather. The rescheduled test date will be posted at as soon as it is set.

Officials with the school boards in Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron and Jeff Davis and Vernon have announced that schools will close for the day, due to the snow falling in SWLA.
