Cushing — Cushing Community School held a parade May 30 to celebrate the end of the school year, though the students have not been able to attend school physically since March.

Cushing Community School currently has about 90 students and teaches kindergarten to fifth grade.

Nicole McClean, a third grade teacher, said the school staff have wanted to organize an end of year parade for a while.

McClean said the parade had fire trucks, and all teachers participated as well.

The parade was organized by a group of staff, teachers and ed techs at Cushing Community School. McClean said parents, siblings and former students were participating as well.

“This is a wonky end of the year. It’s so sad,” said McClean, “This is our way to say goodbye and get the community together. We really wanted to have an end to the year.”

McClean said the staff usually wave goodbye to the students on the last day of school. The parade is a way to still have that farewell event.
