Deer Creek Schools gets creative with singing snow day message

EDMOND, Okla. — Every school district in central Oklahoma cancelled classes Thursday because of inclement weather.

Districts alerted parents through district websites, Twitter, Facebook, NewsChannel 4 and district-wide phone alert systems.

Deer Creek Schools cancelled classes for the day about 6 a.m..

However, parents in the Deer Creek district were treated to a musical surprise when they got the School Reach system voicemail.

Listen as NewsChannel 4’s Ali Meyer plays the sing-a-gram on the air during KFOR weather coverage Thursday morning.

After a short but exhaustive investigation, NewsChannel 4 has determined the “artist” behind the snappy message was Lenis DeRieux, Deer Creek’s Director of Personnel & Communications.

DeRieux has received dozens of rave reviews on her Facebook page.

In case you weren’t able to decipher the tune, DeRieux said it’s one of the musical numbers from the hit Disney movie, Frozen.

Well played, Lenis.
