REDDING, Calif. - Teachers at Lassen View Elementary in Redding want to make sure their students know they’re important.

Teachers hopped in their cars Thursday morning and paraded through Redding neighborhoods and drove by with messages for their students.

“Everybody needs some encouraging words right now and positivity,” said Caryn Emerson, the principal of Lassen View Elementary. “This is a great way for staff to get together and help out our families.”

Teachers and staff hung signs out their car doors, telling students how much they love and miss them and want them to stay safe.

“We just really wanted to tell our kids and families how much we miss them and love them and we're cheering them on,” said Emerson.

That same message echoed from kids to their teachers, with families also holding sings, waving, smiling, and cheering.

“It's great to support the kids and they're excited,” said Robert Zachary a Lassen View Elementary parent.

“They made signs to show how excited they are to see their teachers again.”

Students tell Action News Now they miss being around their teachers, learning, and playing games.

“I miss going to school,” said Nick Rowland, a second-grader at Lassen View.

“I miss how nice they are,” said fifth-grader Ruben Espinosa.

Over 20 Lassen View school staff members participated in the social distancing parade.
