What's better than receiving an e-mail informing you of a "Snow Day"? How about a music video with your Head of School lip-synching "School is Closed" to the tune of Frozen's super hit song "Let it Go?" That's exactly what Matt Glendinning, the Principal at the Moses Brown School in Providence, Rhode Island, did to announce that school would not be in session on January 27th.

According to Glendinning, the video which took a week to create, was in planning long before New England was hit by the massive blizzard that forced the school closure. As you may have guessed, the entertaining parody that suggests students spend their free day reading โ€œan engaging book or two", has been a huge hit - not just among the students at Moses Brown, but also with the over three million people that have viewed it on YouTube!

                      That sounds like something my principle would do! In fact she did something just like that, to announce our new snow day, she made a parody of the song "NO SCHOOL TOMORROW"!! You can look up the song!
