Abby Houghton, Editor in Chief

October 26, 2020

Is it safe to go trick or treating this year? This is the question on many minds as Halloween nears. No one wants to speed up the spread of COVID-19, but not being able to trick-or-treat would ruin Halloween in my opinion.

Like all of us, I am at school from 7 a.m. to 2:31 p.m. Then I have volleyball practice until 5:30 p.m. Twice a week I have games that take as long as two hours. I’m tired.  But when I get home, instead of relaxing, I have to pull out my homework. Each assignment might just take 30 to 60 min...
