School announces 3-hour delay for Monday after Super Bowl
A Massachusetts school has granted students a three-hour delay for the Monday after Super Bowl LII.
Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School in Easton made the announcement in a humorous YouTube video Thursday.
The video, which shows students begging Superintendent Luis Lopes to issue the delay.
At first, he refuses, saying the New England Patriots are "in the Super Bowl every year" and they have too much work to do.
"We can't do it," Lopes said.
The students turn away, hanging their heads down in disappointment.
But they eventually come up with a plan, which includes their mascot. They also get members of the administration involved.
As a group, they eventually change his mind.
"Can I have your attention, please," Lopes says over the school's intercom. "After careful consideration, I am pleased to announce that on Monday, February 5, the day after the Super Bowl, we will be having a three-hour delay for students."
The students immediately cheer and offer each other high-fives.
The Patriots will face the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night on NBC.
