TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Wyandotte Elementary teachers are letting their students know just how much they miss them.
With Indiana schools closed until May 1, they took to the streets to say hello.

More than twenty cars made up the "teacher parade" for the elementary students Monday. The route ran through several neighborhoods to reach the entire student body. It was designed so that social distancing is practiced while the coronavirus continues to spread.

Principal Marybeth Fitzgerald says the wellbeing and education of the students is always their main priority.

"We want make sure kids know they're safe and they're loved," said Fitzgerald. "In TSC, we've worked really hard to try and figure out how to be safe. We're working on how to make sure we can get remote learning, but our main focus is make sure everyone is safe."

Wyandotte's therapy dog, Cash, with the teachers to greet the students as well. 

Parent Adriana Mesaros said her family appreciated the gesture.

"It's hard for everyone, but stay in the car, stay a safe distance between us so we don't spread the virus," Mesaros said. "But, we're all in this together!"

Her daughter, Alicia, enjoyed the parade, but wished she was back with her teachers again.

"It's better to be in a school with them teaching me than being at home and doing work," said Alicia. 

Fitzgerald said they hope that by the end of the month, they'll be able to tell students the plan going forward.
