"It's a a different way to get the message out," Rovtar said.

The video has hundreds of likes, comments and shares.

"Looking out the window, every hour on the hour. Being Superintendent is cool, cause I got one awesome power. It's a snow day!" she raps in the video.

So why'd she do it?

"I think it's fun," said Rovtar.

The Livingston Public Schools Notations Ensemble also published a video notifying students there about a snow day, which has thousands of views.
