ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y. — It’s a scene that has become quite common in our area: local teachers jumping in their cars and having a parade for their students stuck at home.

Monday, teachers from the Learning Academy of St. Marks in Rockville Centre took to the streets to say “hello” to their preschool students.

Organizers said the event might have been even more therapeutic for the adults.

Teachers reminded parade-goers to keep social distancing.
