Teachers and staff from the Perry Elementary school hope their students are missing them as much as they are longing to reconnect with the youngsters.
As part of a continuing outreach effort, PES will hold a parade of vehicles throughout the community at 2 p.m. Friday. If foul weather intervenes the parade will be moved to Monday at 2 p.m. Parents and others can check the Perry Elementary School Facebook page for any word on a possible postponement.
Principal Ned Menke said a test run of the route required approximately 75 minutes, and notes those living along the far end of the circuit will need to time their expected drive-by appropriately.
Teachers will be waving and encouraging students as they pass by, and they ask that the students respect social distancing but are hopeful many will step outside to return greetings.
