Fallsburg Caravan to honor students and families

FALLSBURG - In celebration of ending a very challenging school year 2019-2020, Fallsburg Central School District (FCSD) will hold an historic caravan of cars and buses carrying over 100 staff from the District on Saturday, June 13 at 10 a.m.
The parade will begin at Benjamin Cosor Elementary School, proceed to Woodridge, Glen Wild, Woodridge again, Mountaindale, Woodridge, Woodbourne, Loch Sheldrake, Hurleyville and South Fallsburg. The times and exact locations of the route are available on the school web site,

The idea for this event was spawned in a couple different individuals and groups at about the same time. Woodbourne Fire Company contacted the Fallsburg Teacher's Association; Athletic Director Suzanne Lendzian was thinking of ways to acknowledge Comets athletes when the annual awards banquet had to be canceled; and Penny Esposito, FTA President was discussing the idea with the teachers.
Rolling V Bus Company, who has done so much to support the schools and the community during the pandemic, was immediately on board with the parade and offered a couple of buses to drive staff that did not have a car or wanted to be riders and not drivers. Three buses will have decorations as follows: one will be celebrating the Class of 2020; a second will acknowledge the Jr/Sr High School and be decorated by staff from that building; and the third bus will honor BCES students and be decorated by their staff.
As a special feature, and again because of the Athletic Awards Ceremony cancellation, the Athletic Director and team coaches will display on their vehicles the latest championship banners acknowledging outstanding achievement of teams and individuals.
Special thanks to Rolling V for determining the route and the times and to Town of Fallsburg Police Department for controlling traffic safety during the parade. FCSD encourages townspeople to be present along the route to wave and share the gratitude to the teachers, the students, the families, who endured and completed an incredibly strenuous 2019-2020 school year.
FCSD is very happy to be honoring the students and families for their perseverance and accomplishments.
