Due to COVID-19 concerns, hallway decorating was moved to Oct. 3-4.

Anyone wanting to participate in decorating were welcome to participate from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

“I hope more students will turn out this year,” Junior Class co-vice president Tyler Solida said before the event. “With the whole COVID situation, some events are getting canceled, and there isn’t a whole lot more to do this year.”

A noticeable change to hallway decorating was the change to move decorating to the weekend.

Solida said that the reason for moving hallway decorating was to give students more time.

“We decided to move it to the weekend just to give it a little bit more time, because last year, when we did hallway decorating during PRIDE Time, we didn’t have a whole lot of time to work on it,” Solida said. “The majority of StuCo is hoping that maybe it will turn out a little bit better, and that more people will want to show up.”

Solida said he enjoys and embraces the change to the hallway decorating.

“I do like that it has been moved to the weekend since it allows people to plan out things more and come up with more creative designs, than doing it in two 30-minute PRIDE Time class periods,” Solida said.

Judging of the student hallways took place on Sunday, Oct. 4 after the decorating, with the senior Class winning.
