Rich Pond Elementary teachers form a parade to visit students

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – During the pandemic, students and teachers were separated last minute.

Many children and teachers are missing each other after nearly two weeks of non-traditional instruction days.

So today, teachers from Rich Pond Elementary School in Bowling Green drove around the district in painted vehicles with signs just to see their students.

In order to maintain social distancing, parents parked with space between each car and the teachers drove by and waved through their windows and sunroofs.

The children were excited to see their teachers, and the teachers seemed just as happy to see their students.

Teachers drove by honking and yelling their student’s names, students yelled for their teachers.

Students said they were excited for the parade.

As of now, schools are out until the end of April and perhaps even longer.
