Postcards informing citizens of how to vote are lined up on a desk. Palo Alto High School students sent these postcards through the nonprofit organization Reclaim Our Vote in an effort to reduce voter suppression. “We wrote to people in voter suppression states not telling them which party to vote for, but just giving them voting information so that the election was more fair,” said the club’s co-president Bella Daly.

A substitute teacher distributes at-home COVID-19 test kits to students on Wednesday in an AP English Language and Composition class. Rising case numbers and the recent Omicron variant are causing safety concerns among some students and staff members. Junior Anjali Akkaraju said she believes a transition to online learning, though undesirable, is necessary. “I don’t want school to be back online, but I’m just confused why we’re not,” Akkaraju said. “They gave us two rapid tests, which is good because they’re sold out everywhere.”  Photo: Lauren Wong
