Staff at Saseenos Elementary School Sooke organized a drive-by on Friday to give a warm “hello” to students.
Students and parents were able to pass by and wave to their favourite teachers and school staff. Both staff and students prepared heartfelt signs and decorations to bring to the drive-by event to show how much they miss each other.
Saseenos principal Gord Johnson said the event was planned “just to say a quick hello,” to all the families, as students across the province are not permitted in school right now due to the pandemic.
“All the staff is here, the spirits are high, we are physical distancing, there are non-stop kids and parents coming through here, and we are having the best day ever,” said Johnson.
