Parents, teachers drive-by message
A caravan of vehicles held Sept. 16, 2020, urged for virtual learning to continue in Palm Beach County.

The caravan then made its way to school district offices.

"It's just frustrating, and I don't feel like we're prepared, and I hope that they make sure that we are safe come Monday [when in-person learning starts]," said one participant of the caravan.

The caravan also included a moment of silence for those who have died during the coronavirus pandemic.
