Local Educators for the Win

In our Top 10 list of all-time best school closing videos below, we're proud to say that four are from our immediate area. Swartz Creek High School Principal Jim Kitchen and superintendent Ben Mainka have built up quite a following - and have mastered the art of creating unique videos that tell parents and kids in the district that it's OK to sleep in.

Some of their videos are so good they've been shared throughout the county and have even been featured on 'Good Morning America,' 'The Tonight Show,' and other late-night programs.

And Swartz Creek isn't the only school district to get in on the game. A few years ago, Vassar Public schools created a video to the tune of 'Ice Ice Baby' that proudly makes our list.

'Ice Ice Baby' is a popular choice among school districts that want tot get the message out. But we've also included a few that feature parodies of songs by Adele, Garth Brook, and even the Backstreet Boys.
