Tuesday morning, the streets of Westport were full of fire trucks and teachers.

In case you missed it, many of the teachers in Westport put together a parade through town to try and see all their students during this time of social distancing due to the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Early Tuesday morning, they were joined by town fire trucks and headed out on a windy route through town.

The parade of teachers tried to reach as many students as they could, but if you still missed them going by you can watch the parade pass here.

There was beeping, waving, flags, flashing lights, and even a giant penguin during the roughly seven-minutes-long parade.

But the best part was how happy everyone looked to be there.

I've heard that other towns are planning the same sort of teacher parade to reach out to students while everyone is stuck at home.

And we'd love for you to share those town teacher plans with us, too.

Clearly, teachers across the SouthCoast are going above and beyond for their students during these uncharted times and I think we all love to see that.

And you can honor that as well.

We are still looking to recognize those teachers in our area going the extra mile for their students (in this case quite literally) and we need your help. Nominate a teacher today for our SouthCoast Teacher of the Month:

Along with ProGroup Contracting, we want to show some love for those amazing SouthCoast teachers still doing so much for their students.
