Forget boring school cancellation e-mails. Hip administrators are announcing weather closures with funky parodies about snow and ice.
North Carolina's Durham Academy Head of School Michael Ulka-Steiner and Assistant Head of School/Upper School Director Lee Hark announced that school was closed on Feb. 13 with a chillin' rendition of Vanilla Ice's Ice Ice Baby. The parody is featured on the school's YouTube channel.
"All right stop, collaborate and listen. Ice is back and the roads will glisten," one administrator raps.
The other school administrator later adds, "Stay in your house and drink hot tea."
"No school, there's ice ice baby," they sing in unison. "No school, there's ice ice baby."
(Yes, I am dancing as I write this.)
Last week, a Kentucky school principal announced a snow day with a parody of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.
"Everyone grab a Snuggie and watch TV or play the Wii and maybe read," the song goes.
The principal of Olathe's Cedar Creek Elementary School in Kansas and his family informed the community of a snow day with a parody of What Does the Fox Say?
In the video posted on YouTube on Feb. 4, the family sings, "Wednesday's a snow day."
So, where were these school administrators when I was in the classroom? Thanks for the laughs, guys.
