Students get honks, waves during coronavirus shutdown
On Wednesday, April 15, Ohio grade school and high school teachers and staff hosted a car parade amid the coronavirus shutdown.
About 25 vehicles participated in the parade, which was led by Robb Kleist, bus driver. The parade drove by every student's house to honk and wave. The Ohio Fire Department and Bureau County Sheriff's Deputy Cliff Morse also joined in.
Students and families were greeted with honks, waves, positive messages and smiles. Some families made signs telling the teachers and staff that they missed them.
According to a statement from teachers and staff members: "The parade took a little over two hours, but was well worth the time. It was a great opportunity to see the students and families from afar during this pandemic. We wanted the students and families of Ohio Schools to know that we still care and we are here for them. We were extremely thankful that the Ohio Fire Department was able to join us along with Bureau County Sheriff's Deputy Morse. A day for many to remember during these difficult times."
