Meanwhile, reporter Brasen Chi spoke with WHS seniors who can legally vote to see who the seniors of WHS voted for in the election.

WSPN’s Sidney O’Rourke and reporter Rebeca Kamens-Gil asked WHS students how they felt about the lunch during hybrid learning.

“Students can choose to have lunch indoors at the commons or the field house, or outdoors as long as the weather permits,” O’Rourke and Kamens-Gil said. “With strict social-distancing guidelines in place, students try to balance staying safe and socializing with friends as a much needed social break from class.”
