The staff members at Northside Preschool in Danville held a promotion ceremony on Wednesday for the school's students who are moving on to kindergarten next year. Classes were assigned a promotion block from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and the ceremony for each block took less than 15 minutes. In order to abide by social distancing precautions, to say nothing of trying to stay out of the rain, students and families remained in their vehicles as the school staff announced each child's name. In place of traditional applause, family members honked horns to recognize each preschooler. Some also released balloons out of car windows.
