Too cool for school?

This may be the best snow day/school is closed announcement ever.

And yes, it's for realz. I thought these guys were college students or twentysomethings. But they are, in fact, Michael Ulku-Steiner, Head of School at Durham Academy, and Lee Hark, Assistant Head of School/Upper School Director at Durham Academy, a K-12 school in Durham, North Carolina.


For those interested, here are the lyrics (via the Durham Academy YouTube page):

All right stop, Collaborate and listen
Ice is back and the roads will glisten
Polar vortex has a hold of us tightly
Wind like a harpoon daily and nightly

Will the power stop? Yo -- I don't know
Turn up the heat and then let go
Sleet fallin' down like a million missiles
Bringin' school delays and early dismissals.

Dance, To the grocery store
Buy batteries before conditions become . . .
Deadly, slippery roads might be
So stay in your house and drink hot tea

Don't worry kids, the learning's not lost
We have Evernote, Moodle, Veracross
If there is a problem, Greg Fishel will solve it
Check out a book while the ice dissolves. It's

Ice, ice baby. No school, there's ice, ice baby. No school, there's ice, ice baby. No school there's ice, ice baby!
