There have been a few teacher parades, and there are others scheduled. Scroll down to find your school in order by date. If you don’t see your school, email info to firstname.lastname@example.org. See video from other teacher parades below!
A teacher parade means teachers drive by in their cars and students and their families stay by the curb. It’s a great way to connect without getting close. Be sure to follow health guidelines and keep at least 6 feet of social distance from your neighbors also.

It’s a large area, but they will drive by eventually, so keep a watch for around an hour. They will be looking for their students to come out and wave, so come out to one of these main roads below, so they can see you. Remember to keep your distance from others!
The following streets are the ones they’ll visit in the neighborhoods surrounding the school, but they will visit other areas in the school’s zone also.

PREVIOUSLY MARCH 25, 2020
Benton children have been out of school for nearly two weeks due to COVID-19 closures, but they were out by the curb on Wednesday afternoon, just to get a glimpse of their teachers.
The message went out on social media recently that a group of teachers and staff from Caldwell Elementary School had organized a parade of sorts, driving through the neighborhoods where their students live.
Beth Burns and her children were excited to wave at all the familiar faces as they drove by. Students wrote messages in chalk on the street for teachers and the teachers threw candy as they drove by. There were approximately 14 vehicles in the parade.
