TOWSON, Md. — The games and matches may be canceled, but school spirit is still strong.

The staff and community that makes up West Towson Elementary decided to have a caravan Sunday to bring some much-needed spirit and cheer to their students.

“We're just going to drive through our neighborhood and wave to our kids. We are practicing safe, healthy practices. We're practicing social distancing and we want to touch base with our kids. We miss them and we know they miss us,” Sue Hershfeld, Principal at West Towson Elementary School.

The parade of cars traveled through the Towson area.

While school is out, teachers are encouraging kids to do their packets, work on their math and reading skills and to enjoy fresh air with their families.

Schools in Maryland are closed through March 27th and there’s no updates from the state superintendent on whether the closure will be extended.
