Santa and a host of helpers, including several Fort Atkinson firefighters and Fort Atkinson High School seniors, were on hand Saturday morning to greet families in cars as they drove through the Purdy Elementary School bus lane. Santa was the fifth stop along the lane. Families were invited to stop at four stations where they could pick up reindeer food, kits to make cookies and ornaments, and a bag full of goodies. The drive-through option to visit with Santa was organized by the school's PTO as a COVID-19-safe alternative to the more traditional Breakfast with Santa program typically held at the school. By mid-morning, Santa estimated that he had visited with some 80 children in cars.
