There's a chance school will be cancelled on Wednesday.  You can thank Swartz Creek Superintendent, Ben Mainka, and High School Principal, Jim Kitchen, for that.  The pair aren't letting the possibility of school being closed due to winter weather interrupt education in the district.  In fact, they've embraced the opportunity to teach students the right way to influence the Wednesday schedule.

"There has never been a foolproof method of causing a snow day to occur... until now," a new video released on Tuesday advises.

As of this publication, school is still in session in Swartz Creek.  In fact, the same is true for Durand, Byron and all other area schools, so there is clearly work to be done.  Forget the ice cubes in the toilet, forget the spoon under your pillow, forget turning your pajamas inside out... or backwards... or whatever it is...

It's time to dance.

Watch the video below.

P.S. We'll post school closings here.

P.P.S. We just want you to know... we're all counting on you.

There's a lot more from Durand Now to see and hear, including this week's top stories! Keep going!

NEW EPISODE
Season 3 Episode 1: The Chair - 1.24.20

Two years ago Josh Strickland purchased an antique chair that purportedly spent decades in the old Owosso Post Office. Today a photo was shared in the Historic Owosso Facebook group. In the photo, a man is sitting in a similar chair. While the thread attempts to figure out who is pictured and where in Owosso the photo was taken, one user suggests that it may have been in the old post office.
