Folks are finding new ways to stay connected since the virus outbreak has affected the entire planet and Kyrock Elementary teachers and staff did just that, in this uplifting video to their students and their local community.
Kyrock Principal Shaun Stice credited first grade teacher Lauren Goins for the idea and for overseeing the project.
"We're staying in touch with our kids as much as we possibly can," he said. "The teachers are making contact with their students multiple times per week."
The video shows teachers and school staff with positive messages to their students to the song "You've Got a Friend in Me," along with a special message from Principal Stice.
He said while the school obviously didn't see the school year going in this direction, the school has continued moving forward and the students are doing what is asked of them.
"I'm very proud of how our district came together and made decisions on what is best for the welfare our county," he said.
