Valley Grove Elementary School is holding a parade today to send students into summer break.
“It’s kind of a bittersweet ending to the school year, but it’s something to give the teachers, kids, everyone that final closure for the school year,” Tessa Simmons, the assistant principal at Valley Grove Elementary, said.
“They can just drive up, take a little cruise around and wave good-bye to everyone,” Simmons said.
“We didn’t really get to have that final closure with the kids,” Simmons said. “We thought this would be a nice safe alternative to that.”
A rain date for the parade if needed would be from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday.
