“Hallelujah”, was the tune students in to the south of Massachusetts school sang after the superintendent uses the famous song to announce school was canceled because of the nor’easter.
Aaron Polansky, superintendent for the Old Colony Regional vocation Technical High School in Rochester, Mass., rewrote the words of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” to let its students know that they could sleep on Tuesday.

“I heard that there is a winter storm in the South of the Mass, there is snow in the store, and you don’t really want to risk it do ya?” Polansky sang for the camera. “Well, it goes as follows, we cancelled trip to New York City for Cosmo Kids, so I think that we probably should cancel school.”
Seven students then sang the “Hallelujah” chorus while swaying in the background.
Polansky uploaded the video to YouTube and is already more than 7,000 times.
