Most of the time when superintendents close or delay schools because of weather, they'll call their local TV and radio stations, but the recent polar vortex that has treated the Dakotas and Minnesota to wind chills in excess of 60 below zero is bringing out creativity in administrators and students.
The principal of Central Cass Middle School Principal Lisa Narum sang the weather cancellation earlier this week, and now the Moorhead School District is getting in on the fun.
The district was closed Tuesday and Wednesday, and Superintendent Brandon Lunak decided to start school two hours late Thursday, one of the first schools in the region to do so.
The closing and late school inspired Moorhead High's vocal jazz ensemble to put their feelings into song.
And they invited their superintendent to join in on the fun.
