“Bundle up, stay warm and have a good one,” said Shawn Davids.

The principal of Dorothy Peacock Elementary took to Vimeo to send out a message that the school was closed Wednesday for a snow day. All Lower Mainland school districts have declared a snow day.

Singing local lyrics to the tune Green Day’s Time of Your Life, he encouraged students to get outside and play in the snow while they had the chance but that the school was closed because of the heavy snowfall.

James Hill Elementary principal Kendra Simonetto took the video as a challenge and posted her own song.

“With all this snow and Ice Ice Baby (hehe) I miss our @JamesHillElem kids, staff and families! Thanks @sdavids51

for launching the 2020 Snow Day Sing-a-long in @LangleySchools,” she Tweeted.

Langley Memorial Hospital had been overfull during December, according to a statistical review. Occupancy of the hospital averaged 100.3 per cent for the 31-day period. The previous month’s occupancy had averaged 98.1 per cent.
