ANDOVER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — With social distancing and a stay-at-home order in place in Massachusetts, teachers at High Plain Elementary School in Andover miss their students a lot.
So, more than three dozen teachers decorated their vehicles with balloons and "we miss you!" signs and held a car parade Tuesday morning, driving by students' homes beeping their horns and waving.
"We miss our students, our students miss us," Principal Pamela Lathrop told WBZ NewsRadio's Kim Tunnicliffe. "We can't be close to them and see them every day, but we're going to drive through the streets of our school district and wave to the kids, let them know we care about them!"
Andover school spirit was in full display as the teachers rode by.
"HPE misses you all!" one teacher yelled through a bullhorn.
Second-grade teacher Mary Grammard said she was looking forward to seeing her students.
"So excited to see the kids, I just cannot wait!" she said.
