Ever since the Spring season has sprung, there has been an increase in sickness with students. Students and staff members have noticed the sickness started ever since prom night on April 28th.

“It was kind of cold when we went to prom and that could have been taken into effect,” said junior Marissa Moore, “We were also in a giant room together.”

Moore was lucky enough to still be healthy, but this was not the case for many other students.

Senior Megan Michalak said that she has been feeling sick since prom, but it was not the reason for her sickness.

“I think I got sick because I’ve been doing so much stuff. My body finally got tired of it,” said Michalak.

The sickness that has been spreading is a common cold with side effects of sneezing, coughing, and sore throats. The cold has been spectated as contagious.

“I think I’m sick from people coughing around me, so I cover my mouth,” said junior Adrienne Valdez.

Valdez did not attend prom, but still ended up getting the sick.

Nearing the end of the year, the school attendance has been severely low.
“It’s around the season, this also coincides with the beginning of Spring with all the stuff flying in the air and kids breathing it in. It’s a bad combination,” said history teacher David Bedka. “They need to do whatever they can to be here. Obviously, if they’re too sick that’s one thing, but if they’re just a little bit ill they need to suck it up and do what they have to do to be here as much as possible.”

As allergy season continues, the sickness rate at Highland will go on until the end of the year. It is important for students to know when to rest and when to attend school. The most important thing is to keep up the grades and work ethic as finals approach.
