Snow day ballads, which is your favorite?

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - In Burlington, Kentucky the principal of an elementary school is making school closings a little more fun for parents.

Stephens Elementary School principal, James Detwiler, belted out the tune for parents alongside the school drama teacher. He penned the song "Snowhemian Rhapsody" to bring a little fun to the phone messages the school sends out to alert parents of snow days.

But the kids in Kentucky aren’t the only ones, hundreds and thousands of kids are missing school left and right.
 
Now a principal in Kansas is trying to one up him and it's going viral, it’s called “What does the Principal Say?” 

It seems by much of the conversation on our Facebook page that they have the parents reaction right.     

And finally, we've showed you "Snowhemian Rhapsody" and "What does the Principal Say?”, both very creative musical ways to tell kids they're off of school
 
And now, North Carolina is getting in on the action, school officials in Durham let kids know it's a snow day with a spin on “Ice, Ice, Baby”

So now that you've heard all three, we want to know which your favorite is.
