Homecoming is one of the most anticipated events for seniors.  Unfortunately, this year’s homecoming was not open to everyone. The school district decided to keep the tradition of having homecoming; however, safety procedures had to be made in order for parents, staff, and students to attend. Before entering, everyone was required to show their ticket and have their temperature taken by security. If your temperature was high, you were not permitted in and had to wait a few minutes before it was taken again. There was a lot of security at this year’s this event and everyone was required to wear a face covering.

The Senior class advisor, Mrs. Noguera, was in attendance, supporting the king and queen finalist . This night was cold and seats were wet from rain, but still, the candidates pushed through and floored us with their suits and gowns. Before the game started, we had the chance to talk to some finalists and this is what they had to say.

Stephanie Capinterio, a student from the Passaic Preparatory Academy, was encouraged by her friend to be part of the event. That night her parents, friends, and teacher were supporting her . She felt grateful for the opportunity to have this event in person . If she would win, she would dedicate her win to her mom.   If she had a chance to say something to the people who support her, she would say “period.”

Freddy Huitzil, a student from Passaic High School, was running for homecoming king to represent his Colorguard members who  also encouraged him to run. If he won, he would have delicate his win to all the people that supported him. He felt confident about his safety since everyone was wearing a face covering and was following the safety procedures. His message to all the people that supported him was “Thank you for supporting and everything that you guys have done for me.”
