School Administrators Rewrite ‘Hallelujah’ For Funny Snow Day Announcement

Many schools and a number of businesses — including restaurants, stores and even doctors’ offices — closed the first of this week because of snow. That school closing list included the Swartz Creek School District who, on the second day of closures, decided to make the best out of the ‘cold’ situation.

Going above and beyond the standard phone call, email or social media post, superintendent Ben Mainka and high school principal Jim Kitchen took to YouTube for their school closure announcement. The video, titled simply “SCCS Announcement,” seems like it will be pretty serious at first, but it soon takes a different turn.

“I know that one of the things that’s been happening — which is an epidemic across our country — is that superintendents and other administrators are coming up with ridiculous songs,” Mainka says in the video. “And they’re playing music and putting on sunglasses and making absolute fools of themselves trying to cancel school for a snow day.”

Kitchen then says they will not be humiliating themselves by “singing a snow day song” — right before they, of course, beginning singing a snow day song. Their version is to the tune of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” but I don’t want to spoil any of the brilliant lyrics for you. You’ll just have to watch it for yourself.

With a superintendent like Ben Mainka and a principle like Jim Kitchen, these kids are in great hands! Thanks for all you do guys!
