Snowed in kids sleep in their school

Moving snow after night in school

When it comes to sleepovers, this might be your worst nightmare!

Over 100 kids, parents and teachers in South Lanarkshire in Scotland had to sleep in their school when they were snowed in!

They were trapped after lots more snow fell in the area.

But it's not just Scotland that's still being hit by the winter weather. More than a whopping 500 schools will be closed on Tuesday - meaning another day off for some very lucky pupils!

It's a bit of luck that the kids in South Lanarkshire wished they'd had when they found themselves stuck behind the school gates overnight!

Snow has caused lots of problems on roads

It didn't look good when roads to the school became too icy for parents to come and pick them up.

So teachers made up mattresses and beds for everyone - and 150 pupils spent the night in their classrooms.

As well as having to spend even longer at school - what made it worse was the guys trapped there had to have school dinners for their evening meal!

More snow is expected to hit the north east of Scotland and the north west of England in the next few days.
