Rochester Superintendent Kent Pekel reimagined as a superhero due to the snow days he's called this year.

ROCHESTER – To hear Kent Pekel tell it, it was his dog Kobe who made the call to cancel school on Thursday.

That's the video message Pekel, Rochester Public Schools superintendent, sent out Wednesday as the second wave of last week's snowstorm hit the area. Last Tuesday, he shared a Shakespearean plea from a Century High School student, who requested Pekel "calleth school off during the present day" because "the weather is frail tomorrow."

Pekel responded on social media he would, in fact, call a snow day due to the weather.
