Flaws of the year affecting senior’s goals and routines

May 10, 2020

 If I’m being completely honest, I don’t like the fact the schools are closed, but I do understand why.   This pandemic is scaring people because of the death-related news that is coming along with it. However, I think the government also could’ve let us go to school to see our fr...

In Uncertainty: One student battles the “new normal”

Maggie Petersen, Staff Writer

May 10, 2020

I have spent my whole life going through scenarios. As a kid, I figured out what I would do if I became a werewolf, if there was a tornado, if I got magical abilities, if there was a hurricane, if I could fly, if there was a robber, if I could talk to animals, if there was a flood, and if I was someh...

Sophomore looks on bright side during school closure

Kerrigan Edwards, Staff Writer

May 10, 2020

I am not too excited about this whole school closure situation. I was looking forward to spending the rest of the year with my favorite seniors, and now I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to see any of them again.  I have a feeling we are not only going to be out of school for just this amount...

Coronavirus demands that we all work for the collective good

Quinn Soltesz, Audio Editor

May 10, 2020

When thinking of such a historical and odd situation as the one we are collectively living through, it is difficult to formulate an opinion on it. The opinion becomes warped into a collection of first-reaction thoughts and selfish exhaustion with the events of the world. I have to look at the situation...

 Student discovers she actually misses school

Amya Terry, Staff Writer

May 10, 2020

I really disliked school, and I wasn’t sure why. One day I thought about it, what are the pros and cons of school? When I thought everything over, the pros outweigh the cons. I mostly hated being around so many people and getting up early.  School is weird. It’s a really good experience and a terrible ...

Losing myself more and more

Holly Spragg, Online Editor

May 10, 2020

Time - we have nothing but it right now, but the hours seem to run past my eyes in a blur.  My screen time is going up and so is the length of quarantine.  I cannot understand how the days go by so fast but the self isolation takes forever. I have always known that I cannot be one that has long periods o...

Going “back to normal” requires every individual to do their part

Grace Carr, Editor in Chief

April 8, 2020

Frustrated: this word sums up almost every thought I have had the past two weeks since the Coronavirus decided to make an appearance. I will admit, I originally did not take this threat seriously. I knew it was deadly, I knew I needed to be as clean and sanitary as I possibly could, and I knew it ...

April 7, 2020

In the end, we are all but revived.   Masked by the constant warnings and orders, I live day to day uncertain of what’s to come. But one day, as I spend each moment squabbling away on my phone, I yearn for the moment I see a restored nation. Stores start opening up again. Children becom...

This coronavirus thing is killing me. I think I speak for every high school student when I say that I’ve never been more bored in my life.  Every single aspect of our lives has been changed by this virus. Every day is exactly the same: wake up, do homework, be bored because you can’t hang out ...

Quarantined in a House of

David Miller, Staff writer

April 3, 2020

A vicious virus, suspended schools, and collective concern. The Coronavirus has caused quite the disarray. The question to all is: is there a light in these dark times? I mean, probably. My cats are loving it, that’s for sure.  Cats aside, what are the effects of staying home? Travesty and a...
