This would do the persistent alarm part:

    tell application (path to frontmost application as Unicode text)
        display dialog "School is closed [change message to suit]" buttons
"Cancel" default button 1 giving up after 3  -- this should all be on the
same line
        beep 3
    end tell
end repeat
