Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School’s four campuses have been closed to the public since mid-March due to Covid-19, but students and teachers have remained hard at work from home in their virtual classrooms. While they have seen their students frequently through video screens, the teachers at the Holy Spirit elementary campus arranged for a special “Corona Carpool” reception line so they could see their students. Teachers and administrators lined the sidewalk where students would normally be dropped off for school and held signs to express how much they missed seeing their students.
The turnout was incredible, and the line of family cars wrapped around the campus. Some even took multiple laps down the reception line to make sure they got to talk to every teacher. While the teachers had intended to be the ones to create signs to greet their students, many students made their own signs to express how much they missed seeing their favorite teachers. And while it was fun for them to see their teachers, the students were equally excited to see their classmates. Many cars gathered in the parking lot after the parade so that both students and parents could chat with one another from a safe distance.
