Students and Teachers React to New Policies for Cell Phones, Hallways

by Abigail Hart, ’19

When the students of ELHS came back to school this fall, they were met with strict new school policies regarding phone usage and hall passes. 

When interviewed, student reactions to the policy changes were fairly similar. Students believe that the new policy is efficient but there are parts that need to be amended because they are, ironically, creating further distraction. Senior Avery Goulding said that the cell phone policy–not using phones during classes or in the halls–is a great idea, but the policy could be altered. “When I am required to keep my phone away, I just think about how I want to be on my phone, which is actually more distracting,” she said. “They should just let me take out my phone if I want to. The policy causes more work than it’s worth.”

“Marvel’s Spider Man” Swings to Success

The main cover of the Wall-Crawler’s new adventure.

by Noah Phillips, ’21

It’s a claim that has been made time and time again for many superhero games, but I have to say it: Insomniac Games’ “Spider-Man” for the PS4 makes you feel like the titular wall-crawler in this very fun, challenging, and compelling adventure.

The plot of the game is pretty simple: Peter Parker has just arrested the notorious Kingpin and all is well. That is, until an old ally, Martin Li, is revealed as the leader of an evil organization known as The Demons, and is also the supervillain “Mister Negative.” Now it’s up to Peter to save New York, while encountering classic characters such as Silver Sable, Mary Jane Watson, Miles Morales, and many more. All in all, the plot is simple but fun, and I found myself very invested in the story, even feeling pretty distressed at critical moments of the story such as the ending involving the fate of a pretty critical character.
