WAKE FOREST — Franklin Academy teachers waved to their students last week as parents drove the students through school carpool lines in a socially distancing parking lot parade. 

The Chalk Road campus for third through eighth grades held its parade Wednesday, May 13. The Franklin Street campus for kindergarten through second grades held a parade the following day. 

Teachers stood along the carpool lines, at a distance, and waived as the cars passed.
