ADDISON, NY (WETM)- Car parades are happening all across America as people are sheltering in place. One local school district thought it would a fun way to connect with their students.

Addison School staff drove through the Village to connect with their students safely. Four groups of cars followed school buses up and down streets, honking and waving to their pupils.

“The event has been planned as a fun way to stay connected with Addison students, parents,
guardians and community and to boost morale, while still following the safety and health guidelines that are in place at this unique time,” said Addison Central School District in a press lease.

For the parents, this was a fun experience for their children during a difficult time.

“It’s nice to see all of the teachers come out, it shows that they really care about everybody in the community, that they really care about the kids,” said Noah Plumley, father of 5-year-old Landon Austin. “It’s nice for the kids to still be able to see their teachers and everything like that.”

For Austin, he was happy to see his teachers, specifically Mrs. Nickles.
