Earlier today, teachers and staff from a local elementary school drove decorated vehicles through Vienna neighborhoods to say hello to families.
The “Love Parade” organized by Cunningham Park Elementary School (1001 Park Street) aimed to show support for families during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The parade started around 11 a.m. and made its way through several local streets. Families came outside to wave to the teachers and staff, who adorned their vehicles with messages:
“We love you.”
“CPES STUDENTS ROCK!”
“Remember Wash your HANDS”
Fairfax County public schools are closed through the end of the school year. FCPS is planning for teachers to provide distance learning to students while the buildings are closed.
Some people took to social media to show their appreciation for the parade:
So the teachers and staff from Cunningham Elementary School in Vienna, Virginia decided to have a Love Parade through the neighborhoods to uplift students spirits and show them how much they miss them! It was wonderful to watch. @TommyMcFLY @TysonsReporter @wusa9 pic.twitter.com/ySbmyD4ewX
