Francisco Guevara arrived at Bend High School a little earlier than normal Thursday. The senior was thrilled — after many attempts to sign up, he was finally about to receive his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at a clinic inside the school's gym.

"I was so excited," said Guevara, 18. "Especially since I work in food service, I was waiting for it to be my turn."

Great article friends! We all are waiting for the Covid vaccine for teenagers. It is very needed to have a vaccine for this virus. As we all know that this Covid pandemic had disturbed the whole world including our education. We are going to study from home and in all these conditions we all depend on the online study.

This is good policy by the school board and district. It is truly shameful that protestors harassed students and the church pastor and refused to leave church property until the cops were called. They are a very small but very incoherently loud minority--not at all representative of this community.
