Ah, the snow day. That magical surprise day when kids get to stay home and sleep late, then go play in the snow and follow it up with hot cocoa. It’s every kid’s dream, and school administrators know it! Some of them have been breaking the internet with their viral snow day announcements, and their creativity and humor have us in awe. Here are some of our favorites, in case you’re feeling inspired to try a funny announcement of your own!
1. Snow, Snow, Snow Day
This song parody turns a snow day announcement into a dance jam! Clearly, this is one superintendent who loves snowy weather just as much as his students.

These guys have got some pipes! They swear they’re not going to sing a snow day announcement, but ultimately, they just can’t help themselves.

This superintendent is determined to announce the snow day in a dignified manner, but his cheerleader friends have a very different idea.

“Uptown Funk” becomes a snow day classic when these educators put their own spin on it. The funny footage of teachers playing in the halls is sure to crack kids up.

So many funny snow day announcements are song parodies! In this one, Superintendent Dr. Neil Glass lets kids know they can keep their horse in the barn, ’cause school is closed.

When his first snow day parody of “Thunder” was a big hit with his students, this superintendent did a second one to the tune of “Sweet Caroline.” Cold days never seemed so good!
