Dad’s Snow Day Tweet Amid COVID-19 Goes Viral

In a viral tweet, one dad posted a letter from his kids school after they decided to honor snow days for students amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

David Teicher, a New Jersey dad of two, posted a screenshot of an email he received from the superintendent at his children’s school, which he said “almost made me cry.”

The email read: “We have decided that few childhood activities remain unchanged due to COVID-19 and we will maintain the hope of children by calling actual snow days due to inclement weather.”

“Snow days are chances for on-site learners and virtual learners to just be kids by playing in the snow, baking cookies, reading books, and watching a good movie.”

“These are times for memory-making, and we believe these types of opportunities should remain intact,” the email concluded.

Teicher shared how he was “moved” to see the school’s choice to honor snow days.

“Kids have lost so much of what we think of as ‘the childhood experience’ this past year, with virtual school and social distancing, and we talk with other parents all the time about what kind of lasting impact it will have on them, and no one really knows,” he says.

“It just was really nice to see the district put their happiness and mental well-being first in an effort to preserve something they love and can be excited about.”

Since posting on October 27, the tweet has garnered over 20K likes.

And while Teicher did not expect his tweet to go viral, he understand why.

“I had no idea it would blow up like it did,” he revealed to Romper. “But I guess there are lots of other people, either with kids or who remember what it was like to be a kid, to wake up at 5 a.m. and excitedly run to the window hoping to see enough snow to warrant a snow day, that it hit us all in the feels, as they say.”
