Port Clinton School District teachers will be in the spotlight with their own special parade on Friday, May 8 for the wonderful job they have doing with remote learning and mentoring students and parents. The Port Clinton Federation of Teachers have planned that the parade will wind through the streets of Port Clinton on Friday, May 8 at 3 p.m.
The PCFT, with assistance from the Mayor Mike Snider and the City of Port Clinton, are organizing the event. Port Clinton teachers miss seeing their students in person and they are hoping to get the opportunity to see them at a distance during the parade. Friday will wrap up Virtual Teacher Appreciation Week, and the Port Clinton School District would like everyone along the parade route to keep social distancing mind while saying “Thank you” to Port Clinton teachers.
The parade will start at Port Clinton City Hall and then follow this route: South on Buckeye; West on State; North on Maple; West on Third; South on McKinley; Slight jog on Fremont Road; South on Kaspar; North on Grant; East on Alice; North on Harrison; East on Sixth; South on Madison; East on Eleventh; North on Fulton; West on Fourth; North on Harrison; East on Second; North on Maple; East on Perry; South on Buckeye; End at City Hall.
A visual map of the parade route, along with Virtual Teacher Appreciation Week information, can be found at Port Clinton City School District’s website, www.pccsd.net under the News section. The Port Clinton Police, Fire and Rescue, Ottawa County Sheriff and Ohio Highway Patrol will be an escort for the parade.
