Schools Taking Innovative Approaches to See Students

-MEDIA ALERT-

WHAT: On Thursday, Stokesdale Elementary and several Northern-area schools will be conducting two events that will allow families to still see their teachers, all while continuing to implement social distancing strategies.

Stokesdale Elementary will host a “drive thru and wave event.” Teachers will park in a spot in the parking lot, bring out a chair and wave as families drive by with their students. This is a safe way for families to see their favorite faculty and staff from the safety of their cars.

Northern Middle will be the meeting spot for several schools before they embark on their “Nighthawk Caravan” event. The staff of Northern Middle, Northern Elementary, Northern High, Summerfield Elementary and McNair Elementary plus Hawkie the mascot will leave from the parking lot and driving through several neighborhoods waving and spreading joy to students and families once again, from the safety of their cars.

WHEN: Stokesdale Event: March 26, 6:30 p.m.
Northern Guilford Event: March 26, 4 p.m.

WHERE: Stokesdale Event: 8025 US Hwy 158, Stokesdale, NC 27357
