Elementary school principal James Detwiler decided to deliver the news that weather shut down school in a creative way. With some help from the school’s creative drama teacher, Chad Caddell, he sent his snow day phone messages to parents as a version of Queen's song "Bohemian Rhapsody." Detwiler said he and Caddell actually made the recording last week, in anticipation of another school closing at Stephens Elementary School in Burlington, Kentucky, in the very near feature. Detwiler posted the video on his Facebook page before putting it up on YouTube, where it got more than 77,000 views within its first day.
