Many students at Castle View High School enjoyed vacation while on spring break. For freshman Peyton Rettmer her spring break trip was filled with a family trip to Cancun, Mexico.
“For my spring break trip I went to Cancun with my family. During my trip I went to Isla Mujeres, Xelha Waterpark and Chitchen Itza,” Rettmer said.
Unlike Rettmer, freshman Charles Columbi his spring break consisted of a trip to Florida with the lacrosse team.
“For my spring break trip I went to Orlando, Florida for a lacrosse trip to play a few games,” Columbi said.
During their spring break the trips may have been changed a little due to COVID-19 and the certain protocols following their state and or country they traveled too. For Rettmer, she had to pass a COVID-19 test in order to get back into the country.
“To come back into the United States we needed a negative COVID-19 test. Those were the only “restrictions” for my trip,” Rettmer said.
For Columbi, his trip was not affected as much; the only restriction for him and his team was that while out in public places a mask was required to get into certain tourism attractions.
“Traveling was a little harder because we had to wear masks for long periods at a time and it was a lot of sanitizing,” Columbi said.
These students were still able to enjoy their spring break trip even though some protocols may have made it a little different. Despite such rules and restrictions, Columbi and Rettmer made the best of their spring break.
