A pair of school administrators from Michigan ended up putting on quite a show to make an announcement that school was closed. Swartz Creek Community Schools Superintendent Ben Mainka and Principal Jim Kitchen re-sung the Leonard Cohen classic Hallelujah, adding their own creative lyrics. At the start of a YouTube video titled “SCCS Announcement,” Mainka and principal Kitchen were eager to share district-wide news as simply as possible, without any silly antics. Then, without warning, the music started to play until Kitchen put a stop to it. “Let me reiterate we are not going to humiliate ourselves by singing a snowday song,” he said. “I honestly don’t know what happened. I can’t stand it when people sing about snow days!” agreed Mainka. But once again the music started and this time the duo couldn’t resist as they put on their sunglasses and began to croon.
