School Closing Video Goes Viral


UPDATED: Tuesday February 4, 2014 9:08 AM

Central Ohio is preparing for another winter storm that's expected to move in to the area Tuesday evening.  As that storm approaches, school districts are making plans for school delays and closings.

One district in Kentucky is rolling out a new way to announce when school is closed.

James Detwiler is the principal at Stephens Elementary in Boone County, Kentucky.

Detwiler teamed up with drama teacher Chad Caddell to spice up the district's announcement. 

The two educators published a video on YouTube of a school closing message to tune of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Principal Detwiler says he got tired of hearing his voice over and over again delivering that same message. Boone County Schools has missed nine days so far this winter.
   
The video is spreading across the country and has already got thousands of hits on YouTube.
