A Flood of Changes. . . and Students

Metro Hamm, Writer-Photographer

Ever since the start of the 2021-2022 school year, there have been a lot of changes – not just since online school, but also since before the COVID-19 pandemic altogether. One of these changes is the sudden increase of students in the hallways, which clog them and block many students from getting to their classes. The influx of students arguably most affects the 3rd floor. Now, here is an interview with fellow Newspaper Staff Member, Max Webber. 

Q: What was the worst part of online school? What was the best?

A: The worst part was the lack of interaction, I couldn’t see the teacher, couldn’t see the kids. I couldn’t get the help I needed nor could the other students… There was no advantage over normal school but I enjoyed the lack of bullying and harassment.

Q: Has the flood of kids in school affected you mentally?

“One of these changes is the sudden increase of students in the hallways. . .

— Max Webber

A: Not necessarily, but it was definitely shocking as not even Pre-Covid school was this crowded. But it hasn’t had any lasting effects on me. 

Q: Do You find it difficult to get to your classes?

A: Absolutely.

Q: Is it due to the size of Central or the overload of students?

A: All of the above.

Over the course of the last few months, many students, myself and Max included, have felt stress over the sudden change, but we hope that soon school will return to the normalcy that was present before the COVID-19 pandemic.
