Teachers and staff from the Pine Island school district paraded through the southern Minnesota community on Friday to show support for the new distance-learning program that goes into effect next week.
Kids and families gathered — keeping a safe distance apart — to watch the parade pass by.
Classes were canceled for most of the past couple weeks at public schools across Minnesota to allow educators time to prepare distance-learning plans.
In Pine Island, and in districts across the state, schools will remain closed until early May due to the coronavirus pandemic — but coursework will resume online.
