My name is Elexis Baca. I’m a junior at Rio Rancho High School.
During this school hiatus, I’ve been setting up a daily scavenger hunt for my brother and the other kids in my neighborhood. Usually the prize is a Dion’s cookie or brownie.y name is Elexis Baca. I’m a junior at Rio Rancho High School.
It gets the kids outside to find the clues and use deep-thinking skills to figure out what they mean.
When I’m not doing that, I can be found reading, working at Dion’s or hanging out with my dogs.
I don’t know a lot about the virus, but what I do know is that even if you’re not at risk, you have to protect the people around us who are.
The immunocompromised are the ones that this has to be scary for. Try to put yourselves in their shoes and remember that this “corona-cation” isn’t just an extended spring break; it’s a precaution to protect our neighbors and family.
So don’t take that for granted. We still have responsibilities to them.
