BRADLEY COUNTY, Tenn (WDEF) – Due to COVID-19, schools are closed until further notice,
But, that hasn’t stopped one local school from showing students that their teachers are still thinking of them.
On Thursday, the faculty and staff at North Lee Elementary School in Cleveland went all out to show love and support for their students.
They decorated their cars, honked their horns, and cheered as they drove through the neighborhoods of their students.
Not only were they greeted by students, but by members of the community of all ages.
The teachers stayed one person to a car or one in the front seat and one in the back to practice social distancing.
Principal of North Lee says they hope this lets the student’s know they aren’t alone through this.
“We just hope that by driving by today that our North Lee Rams understand that we still have their backs. We are in their corner and we are supporting them even though we cannot give them a high five in our hallways,” Principal, Dana Yost.
The school’s resource officer planned the entire route and escorted the cars through the neighborhoods while sounding his sirens.
