It is snowing out, but is it enough to close schools? One superintendent says don't count the snowflakes before they fall.

"I enjoy giving my students a hard time on whether I’m giving them a snow day and they enjoy begging for mercy - for me to call a snow day,” says Novi Superintendent Dr. Steve Matthews

So, Dr. Matthews sent out a note to students.

He says high schools students created a hashtag on Twitter - #BelieveinSteve - and have been sending him messages - some even carving it in the snow at school - trying to convince him to give them a snow day tomorrow.

But Dr. Matthews says closing schools are not as easy as your ABCs and 123s - especially if the roads are cleared in the morning.

He will make the final decision early tomorrow morning as to whether schools will be open or closed.
