For Hub City Times
SPENCER – On April 24, the Spencer School District will host a “social distance parade.” District staff will decorate vehicles and drive through the district to wave at their students.
“We know that not every kid can participate, but maybe their caregivers could find it in their schedule to drive to one of the locations along the route,” a letter to the Spencer community said.
“We encourage the kids to make signs showing their Spencer Rocket pride. We’d also love to see the community and area businesses participate in the decorating as well.
“Please remember to keep a safe distance and mingle only with those in your normal household or circle. We still need to be responsible as required by the stay at home order.”
