Hopes Up for 2021

Lucia Ruiz, Features Editor

New years are new beginnings, and after a year of nonstop hardship, 2021 provides a beacon of hope. 

In March, PVHS announced that school would be online for a few weeks. 

Weeks turned into months, and the pandemic shows no evidence of magically going away. 

So, for nine months, we have been away from our beloved campus.

“I hope we can go back to school in 2021. I want everyone to be healthy, of course, but it’s hard to be online for school for so long,” freshman Kylie Mone said.

Online school has caused students and staff to miss out on the social aspects of school that we take for granted. 

“I hope to form better relationships with my teachers and classmates because it’s kind of hard to do that over Zoom,” sophomore Caeden Kim said. 

Seniors have been heavily affected by the setbacks of 2020. 

The negative impacts of  COVID-19 and online school have made applying to college even more difficult than it already is.

“Besides [COVID-19] going away, I would like to make the most out of 2021 because next year, [the rest of the senior class] and I will hopefully be going to college,” senior Emma Hill said. 

“I just want to have fun with my friends and live the best I can.”
