Ilaria Freccia '22 Amongst all others, face masks look like they are going to be a lasting effect of the coronavirus pandemic. Currently, in the state of California and New York, face masks are required when in any public setting by the CDC. It is possible that in the future this will remain the case.

Adrian de Vernou '22 The transition to distance learning has affected everybody within the SHP community, including students, teachers, and faculty members. However, some groups on campus were more dependent on physical interactions than others.

One of the most important end goals for students at Sacred Heart is finding a college, which is why the school offers such a robust college counseling program.

This left Wisconsin voters with a brutal decision: to exercise their constitutional right to vote or to risk contracting a deadly virus. This choice is obviously extremely difficult to make and is…

ASB president Jake Birdwell notes, “There is a strong sense of unity that comes with gathering as a school, and the broadcast is an attempt to do that given the restriction we have right now on coming together in…
