Alex Stahl, Reporter

Arrowhead’s Spring Break begins March 29th and goes until April 5th. Currently, students are planning for this long-awaited break. However, due to Covid-19, trips, this year may look different.

Mitch Winser, a junior at Arrowhead said, “I’m going to stay in Wisconsin. We were going to go to Florida this year but decided not to.” Winser also said, “Covid has really altered our plans, I would really like to go to Florida, but I would rather be safe at home.”

Some students are going on trips in safe ways, such as Chloe Simonson, a junior at Arrowhead. She said, “For spring break this year my family is traveling to Florida. In order to be COVID safe, we are staying at a house with a private pool rather than being exposed to people at a hotel.”

According to the CDC, “COVID-19 is still spreading across our Wisconsin communities. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from getting sick. We recommend Wisconsinites cancel or postpone all travel, including travel within the state.”

Some students decided to have a spring break from the comfort of their homes. Emerson Odeja, a junior at Arrowhead, said, “I am not traveling but I will have two people over for my birthday. I plan on it being Covid safe or I will not be having it.”

In regards to Covid safety, Odeja said, “Please be safe wherever you go, I want to see my grandma at least for my next birthday, don’t want to miss three birthdays with her in a row.”

As Winser said, “If you don’t need to fly, don’t. If you’re going to another country then obviously take a plane, but if you can try to drive to wherever you’re going. Plan things that don’t involve being around large groups of people, like going to a water/amusement park. Plan on doing things that only involve you and your family to minimize exposure to others, and if you are around people always have a mask on.”
