On Tuesday, students in the Greater Toronto Area were surprised to wake up to 10 centimetres of snow after having a relatively mild winter so far. Naturally, the hopeful students turned to Twitter to find out if the “bad weather” was enough to warrant a snow day.
Hinting at the Peel School Board to give them a snow day, one student tweeted out a photo of the weather saying, “@PeelSchools just in case you had absolutely no idea what the weather is like today, I thought I'd give you an update.”
The board was quick to respond, slyly saying:
Don't worry about me. I have a perfect view. Got one on my drive to work and my window blinds are up. Thanks though. https://t.co/9mmFsgOtTK— Peel School Board (@PeelSchools) January 12, 2016
Ten centimetres of snow wasn’t enough to justify a snow day in the Peel and Toronto school districts, reports CityNews. As a reminder to start getting ready for a full day of class, Peel School Board tweeted:
REMINDER: we will only tweet an update if buses/schools are cancelled. Usually by 6:15 a.m. So, I'd start pouring the cereal. #timeforschool— Peel School Board (@PeelSchools) January 12, 2016
The TDSB also reminded its students that schools would be open for the day, eliciting a number of complaints from the kids. In response, the school board proved its sass game was strong by sending out a series of hilarious tweets.

@A_Khenjari Try wearing snow boots. Quadratic equations are worth it.— Toronto DSB (@tdsb) January 12, 2016
The school board even used current slang to both amuse the kids and convince them to get to class.
@lil_m33ch_ For a few cm? Nah. Sorry fam. Nice try, though.— Toronto DSB (@tdsb) January 11, 2016
In the end, the kids laughed off the tweets, praising the school boards for their great sense of humour. “Whoever runs this account, u are savage so good job,” one student wrote.
Another said: “To whoever's behind this account, you're the MVP. Respect.”
