WPS Neighborhood Distance Learning Parade
March 31 was a cool, partly sunny day in Windsor, but the Distance Learning Parade certainly warmed the hearts of both the spectators and parade participants. Windsor Public Schools staff and teachers volunteered to make signs, decorate vehicles and then meet at designated areas in town. Students and families got in the act and made signs, decorated their houses, and then lined the streets to anxiously wait for the parade to roll by. At 12:30 pm, the parade participants left their meeting spots and drove through area neighborhoods, tooting car horns, waving from the car windows or sunroofs, and shouting hellos to the families waving and smiling back at them. The response to the parade was overwhelming and uplifting. After more than two weeks out of the classrooms due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was evident that students and teachers miss each other greatly. Thank you to all who participated in the parade and made it such a huge success.
