Quarantine is not how kids imagined their school year going, but how do they feel about it?

Everything is shut down due to the coronavirus and people all over the country are being affected by it. But just how much is it affecting the lives of students?

Brianna Peralta, a 7th grade student at WMS, said that quarantine has been beneficial to her, explaining, “I got to deep clean my room.”

Peralta also stated, “People are overreacting because we don’t actually need all that stuff,” when asked her opinion on people buying things in unnecessary bulk.

Jake Nagy, a 6th grader at Woodbridge Middle School, said, “I’m still trying to keep in contact with my friends and family. And if I do see them I try to keep clean,” when asked if he was still seeing anyone.

Nagy also commented, “I think the main reason they are doing that is to stay sane, and it’s normal to overreact because it is a very big cause. So I don’t think much of it. The essentials are very important to have with you,” when asked about what he thought of people buying things in unnecessary bulk.

Everyone is hoping for this whole situation to go away soon. We can only hope that we will be able to go back to school before the end of the year. Until we do, everyone stay safe.
