There will be no school for CPS students on Monday, Feb. 14.

Cincinnati Public Schools appears to be a stalwart supporter of Who Dey Nation.

CPS just announced in a press release that all classes will be canceled on Monday, Feb. 14, in honor of the Bengals Super Bowl appearance the night before.

"Staff and students will have the day off to celebrate what we believe will be our city’s
first-ever Super Bowl victory," reads the release. "We hope that you enjoy Roaring the Bengals to a win on Sunday and take this time to take pride in our incredible city and amazing football team."

Classes will resume Feb. 15.

The Cincinnati Bengals won the AFC Championship on Sunday to punch the team's first ticket to the Super Bowl since 1989.

The Bengals will take on the Los Angeles Rams during Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, Feb. 13. The Rams won the Jan. 30 NFC Championship game to advance with the Bengals, who overcame the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime just hours earlier to become the AFC champs.

The Super Bowl will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the Rams' home of SoFi Stadium in Inglewood. NBC will broadcast the game, and fans also can watch on Peacock, Telemundo, and the NBC Sports app.

NBC's and Peacock's Super Bowl coverage will begin at noon, with the pre-game show launching at 1 p.m.
