If you are the principal of a high school, how do you get the word out to your students about the new Covid-19 related restrictions at school? Alabama high school principal, Dr. Quentin J. Lee had the best answer. He chose to sing a rap song set to MC Hammer’s classic hit, “Can’t Touch This.”
His video has gone viral because honestly, we can all use some comic relief these days. And this is a wonderful way to have some fun and get your message across to your students.
He tells his viewers, “As we are all getting ready to go back to school, take a break and enjoy this parody.” In the video, Dr. Lee conveys his message about useful nuggets of information like stay 6 feet away, wash your hands, sanitize, wash your hands and pull your mask up.
He explains that he is doing all these things because he doesn’t want to be sick and he is not the one making these rules, it’s the CDC. As to why he taped the video Principal Lee said, “Basically, just really wanted to do something fun for back-to-school to kind of reinforce a lot of the new things we’re having to do…I like making little silly videos for the kids, just to kind of get them excited about school. I wanted to something to help promote the community.”
We hope the students at this school realize how lucky they are to have such a fun-loving principal.
