Coronavirus News: Uniondale teacher parade more than 50 vehicles long

UNIONDALE, Nassau County (WABC) -- A group of teachers from the Uniondale School District on Long Island took a recess from remote learning classes.

A procession of vehicles left the Uniondale High School parking lot Wednesday afternoon as part of a "distance learning assembly."

The caravan of more than 50 educators drove through local neighborhoods honking horns and waving signs as a way to provide encouragement to restless students at home.

Uniondale has been one of the hardest-hit communities on Long Island by COVID-19.

Students have been taking remote learning classes for more than a month.
