Most Long Island students learned of their snow day through a robocall or a notice posted to their school’s website. But parents in Plainview-Old Bethpage received an additional surprise — a short video starring one of its principals and staff.
This is Douglas Shunk Jr., a volunteer Jericho firefighter. After prepping his parents’ house for the snow, he planned to head to the firehouse to standby in case of accidents in the storm. “It’s exciting because it’s different every time,” he said.
