Like much of Michigan Clare Public Schools in Mid-Michigan had an unexpected April snow day on Monday. However, unlike many other schools in Michigan, superintendent James Walter II created a clever video to make the announcement that his students’ weekend would be extended…

In the 53-second video, Walter can be seen dressed in a lab coat while seated at the helm of a Clare school bus. He then channels his inner Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown from the 1985 film “Back to the Future” to deliver a message.

Walter apparently has a history of making clever videos for his students, but this one has been particularly well received. Less than 24 hours after it was posted it has more than 26,000 views.

Clare Public Schools are expected to reopen on Tuesday, April 17.

Clare Public Schools

Please enjoy the poor acting in this school closing announcement. No school on Monday, April 16th. Stay safe Pioneers. Surely spring will arrive in time for football season?
