As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, CHS has efficiently adapted to the ensuing regulations. 

Rules to manage interactions between both students and educators are in place to prevent the spread of germs, but this does not guarantee adherence to them. 

Though these rules remain necessary, many are disregarded in the midst of our ever-changing lifestyles.

“I think the hardest regulation to follow is social distancing. With so many kids in the school, it’s easy to overlook when you’re walking in the hallways, coming into the school and leaving the school,” said design teacher Nicole Casper. “If I see any of my students, especially ones in my classroom, going up to talk to someone, I remind them that we need to follow social distancing.” 

Even with this occasional negligence, CHS students believe that these regulations are sensible precautions against the virus. 

“I think that these regulations are really effective,” said sophomore Anna Siciliano of Ocean Township. “They make school, at least for me, a much safer place to be, and that’s an amazing thing.” 

Many students also appreciate staff efforts to make the unfamiliar circumstances as “normal” as possible. 

“I think that the regulations are pretty reasonable,¨ said senior Jacynth Apora of Manalapan. “The teachers enforce them, but they aren’t very nitpicky about our behavior and still give us the freedom to see our friends and make things closer to what they were before quarantine started.” 

Regardless of individual opinions, members of the CHS community have come together and are taking the best actions to make school as enjoyable and safe as possible. 

“I think that all of the staff and students are doing a great job following the regulations and adapting to the changes,” said US history teacher Bill Clark. “Everyone is doing their best, and I really appreciate that.”
