SCHOOL IS CLOSED～
Rhode Island School Announces Snow Day to 'Let It Go' Tune
The head of a school took inspiration from the movie "Frozen" to announce a snow day.
In a video released ahead of Tuesday's big storm, Matt Glendinning sang the announcement to students at Moses Brown School to the tune of the movie's best-known song, "Let It Go."
The video features singing by the chairman of the school's performing arts department, Justin Peters, while Glendinning lip-synced lines including: "The snow glows white on Route 95, not a tire track to be seen. We could make you come to school, but that would just be mean."
"School is closed, school is closed, 'cause it snowed so much last night," he continues. "School is closed, school is closed. So stay at home and sit tight."
Lyrics were penned by the school's director of communications, Adam Olenn, who recently joined the staff after working at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and came up with the idea.
Glendinning has been head of school for six years. He admitted he had not seen "Frozen" before recording the video, which was released Monday, but described filming it as the most fun he's ever had.
Glendinning appears around the Providence campus of the private Quaker K-12 school wearing a striped hat, mittens and a scarf he throws over his shoulder with a flourish. Students join in the fun, with a group of thrilled students jumping up and down and two lip-syncing along after Glendenning sings "School is closed. You can stay in bed and sleep."
"Here I'll snooze, and here I'll stay," the two sing from a bunk bed.
Glendenning ends the song with: "At home you'll sit. There's no school today. Let the storm rage on. The cold never bothered me anyway."
《Let It Go》改編放假版 校長高唱待在家吧！
美國東部面臨史上最大暴風雪「朱諾」（Juno）的襲擊，東海岸八州進入緊急狀態，所有人都趕緊去超市掃貨，購買生活用品回家。不過，美國有一所學校的校長苦中作樂，演出學生改編自《Let It Go》的曲子，高唱「學校關門了，待在家吧！」，短短兩天點閱率就已突破百萬。
位於美國羅德島州的摩西布朗學校（Moses Brown School）的校長格蘭登寧（Matt Glendinning），日前演出了由迪士尼動畫《冰雪奇緣》主題曲《Let It Go》改編的《School Is closed》（學校關門了）。搭配時事，歌曲背景是一片雪白，格蘭登寧肢體逗趣表現加上深有同感的歌詞，引人發笑。
影片中改編「放開手」（Let it go）為「學校關了」（School is closed），高唱待在家吧，最後還唱「今天學校沒開，讓大雪繼續下吧，反正我也不怕冷！」
The snow glows white on Route 95, not a tire track to be seen.
We could make you come to school but that would just be mean.
The plows are running but still traffic starts to slide.
So don't come to school, just stay inside.
Don't come to school I am free today, the snow has set you free.
It's true no school just stay at home. You can stay at home.
School is closed, school is closed! Cos' it snowed so much last night.
School is closed, school is closed! So stay at home sit tight.
Stay inside or go out and play, gonna grab my sleigh. The cold never bothered me anyway.
Its funny how some snowflakes can bring things to a crawl.
And the streets that once ran smoothly become a tangled brawl.
It's time for fires and cocoa too, to read an engaging book or two.
Today no Moses Brown for me, I'm free!
School is closed, school is closed! Because the snow's too deep.
School is closed, school is closed! You can stay in bed and sleep.
Here I'll snooze and here I'll stay, let the storm rage on.
This feeling flurries through the air into the ground.
While Dr Cruisin shows us frozen fractals all around.
Though this hard hits me like an icy frozen blast,
We'll soon be going back when this storm has passed.
School is closed, school is closed! Don't come to school at dawn.
School is closed, school is closed! So stay at home with slippers on.
And hold your seat there's no school today.
Let the storm rage on, the cold never bothered me anyway.
