COLLINSVILLE, IL (KMOX) - With their classrooms empty and their students at home because of the coronavirus outbreak, teachers and staff at Renfro Elementary School in Collinsville held a parade Wednesday – just to say hi.
A couple dozen vehicles, decorated with signs and balloons, made their way through neighborhoods with horns honking. Teachers waved and shouted encouragement to students and parents who stood outside, some with their own signs, waving back.
The parade followed one of three bus routes.
The teachers are planning to hold at least two more parades, each covering a different bus route, over the next two Wednesdays.
