Schools use creative videos to announce snow days

Schools in this area have gotten pretty used to announcing snow days this winter. But some administrators are getting more creative with how they announce that students get yet another day off from school.

From Rosewood Elementary, principal Stephanie DiStasio and her daughter Natalie sing a snow day song to the tune of "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" from Disney's "Frozen."

In Clover, Griggs Road Elementary assistant principal Kelly Grant reads a snow day poem to announce Friday's closing.

Students in Fort Mill starred in a music video created by marketing and communications officer Kelly McKinney to announce "School's Out On Friday."

In the York School District, instructional technology specialist Tim Cooper used Legos to say that schools were closed.
