Coolest School Ever? Principal Creates Hilarious 'Bohemian Rhapsody' School-Is-Closed Message for Parents

Pin It

Elementary school principal James Detwiller was tired of telling parents about weather related school delays and closings so he decided to come up with a new way to notify them...and it's pretty epic.

The parents of students at Stephens Elementary School in Burlington, Kentucky recently woke up to a phone call and hearing the principal sing his "school's closed" version of Queen's hit song "Bohemian Rhapsody" and it was a smash.

With a little help from his school's creative drama teacher Chad Caddell, James belted out the weather and school news to parents to the tune of the song. Luckily, it was video taped and put on YouTube for everyone to hear. Check it out above.

So far the video has been shown on The Today Show and has had over 129,000 views online. James told Today there will most likely be a follow-up to the school-is-closed song too.

What do you think about the guys' song? Check out the original version of the hit tune below.
