BELLEVUE, Iowa (KCRG) - The principal for Marquette Catholic Schools found a fun and creative way to alert students that Wednesday is a snow day.

Principal Geoffrey Kaiser said he stayed up all night working on the music video with music teacher Jacob Till while waiting for the wintry weather to arrive.

The song, called “Long Snow Day,” is a parody of country music star Josh Turner’s song “Long Black Train.”

The video was shared in a Facebook post, along with a note to students and parents saying, “don’t go drivin’ on this cold snow day.”

“It looks like we’ve got ourselves a snow day! If you have changes to your daycare plans, please let us know,” Kaiser said in the post.
