Farewell from a distance for Southside
The coronavirus pandemic prevented Southside teachers and staff from getting real closure and saying goodbye to their students. They decided after a Zoom faculty meeting that they would have a reverse parade for their students. The parade gave staff a chance to say goodbye, give back papers, artwork and other belongings and allowed students to purchase yearbooks commemorating this unusual partially-quarantined school year and return library books. There were plenty of smiles, waves and “air hugs” to go around, plus a few tears as well.
