After Sunday’s 27-24 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the Cincinnati Bengals are heading to the Super Bowl.

The results of this win had fans shocked and beaming with pride. The home school district of Bengal’s quarterback Joe Burrow celebrated with bells ringing over none other than the Joe Burrow Stadium. The stadium’s name was changed in December 2019 after Burrow’s speech while accepting the Heisman Trophy raised over $459,000 for the Athens County Food Pantry.

In preparation for Super Bowl Sunday on Feb. 13, several schools in Southwest Ohio have cancelled classes on the following Monday. Cincinnati Public Schools announced Monday that school would be canceled Feb. 14 so that staff and students “celebrate what we believe will be our city’s first-ever Super Bowl victory,” according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

The superintendents from Kings, Indian Hill, Sycamore, Loveland, Finneytown, Lockland and Franklin schools posted a joint video Tuesday afternoon calling Feb. 14 a “Snow-Dey.”

Dayton Public Schools announced that they would be closed for Super Bowl Monday on their Facebook account.
