Teachers at Mann School, 30 of them at last count, connected with their students Wednesday afternoon in a passing parade of teachers’ cars through the northwest Oak Park neighborhood.

An email and Facebook request went out from Amy Mariani, a 20-year Mann veteran, to fellow teachers last week to gauge interest. With enthusiasm strong, Mariani next reached out to Oak Park police to make sure the parade would not violate the current stay-at-home regs we’re all operating under. The police response was that if social distancing is maintained, they were in favor.

Alex Rogals, our photographer, was out shooting the parade.
