[PHOTOS] Indian Valley teachers hold parade to tell students “We Miss You”


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Indian Valley Elementary School teachers and staff made the best of a tough situation today.

Teachers and students have not met in the classroom dating back to Monday, March 16, after one another almost every weekday since August. Today, that changed.

IVES staff united today to see its students in a unique way, a social distancing parade. Vehicles were decorated with signs and streamers as the school’s faculty drove to nearly every neighborhood in the Marble City to wave hello to their students and say, “We miss you.”

“It is very important to me to see the community involvement we have with our school and Sylacauga,” said IVES principal Paula Bruno. “We want our students to know that just because we aren’t able to meet in the classroom, they are in our spirit and we do miss them. We want our students to know that we are here, and we care.”

Today’s parade started at 11 and began in the Drew Court community and ended on Dogwood Circle – going everywhere in between. Students in the community waved as their teachers rolled by, bowing their horns and waving hello.
