This just in … there has been an early sighting of none other than Santa Claus at Westport Elementary, where Preschool students were excited to hear that they are, in fact, all on the “Nice” list. There was no sign of Santa’s sleigh, but Assistant Director of Transportation Andrew Lopshire was spotted in the area and we’re confident Andrew will make sure the Jolly Old Elf gets safely to his next stop. 🎅🎄🎁🚍 See more photos on our social media pages. #CeresSleighs
