West Forsyth students have completed a good chunk of the fourth quarter of this odd, unprecedented year, and they have a lot to show for it. The Titans have a little less than two months left until they go on summer break, or in the seniors’ case, graduate. These last two months, of course, won’t be easy. These final weeks will be spent taking AP exams and end-of-course tests.

In-person AP testing started this week and will continue through May 14. If you opted to take any AP exams virtually, they will be happening the week of May 17-21.

The Titans baseball team has started its season 1-1 with a 12-0 win against Mt. Tabor, followed by a 1-3 loss against Providence. The team will be looking to pick up two wins this week, as it plays East Forsyth on Tuesday and Thursday.

While all of this is going on, and it is great, we must not forget we are amidst a  pandemic. But the state and school are slowly easing things back to normal. West Forsyth made an announcement at the beginning of the week.

“As North Carolina moves to a less restrictive mask policy for outdoor use, we want to ensure your child understands the expectation of mask wearing has not changed while on school grounds. We have eliminated our screening process starting Monday which makes it crucial for students and families to monitor and self-screen for symptoms prior to arriving at school,” the announcement said.

Removal of the screening process and looser mask rules are a sign of a return to normalcy, and that should be majorly appreciated.
