Lakeview teachers flip for students

Reverse parade packs SRNA parking lot

SOLON– Solon is known for hosting long parades.
Vehicles lined up in the Solon Recreation and Nature Area (SRNA) Saturday, April 25, and stretched out north and south on Racine Avenue as Lakeview Elementary teachers and students connected from a safe distance in a “flipped” parade.
Lakeview staff lined the SRNA parking lot with their vehicles and stood by with signs, balloon wands and happy waves as students and their families drove through with their own signs and decorations.
Lakeview Principal Jodi Rickels said she received a request to hold the reverse parade from a parent who had seen it done in another school district.
“We were supposed to have our annual PTO Spartan Dash Saturday morning (April 25) so I thought it might be a great replacement for our staff and families,” Rickels said. “Everyone was eager to do it!”
