Quite a bit has changed during this pandemic. Including how people feel about their kids being in crowds or out Trick-or-Treating. On October 27th, EPCHS had a drive-thru Trick-or-Treating

event for the families of Evergreen Park to help bring back some normalcy in their year.

To help the kids get their annual candy and treats in a safe manner, 6 foot cardboard tubes were used to safely put the candy in the kid’s bucket or bag. As well as that safety precaution students and staff members wore masks and gloves to prevent any contact that the CDC wouldn’t recommend. Color guard was out in the front of the school doing routines and the band was playing in the front parking lot to help get the kids and families excited. 

As they drove down the parking lot behind the school, the Halloween music played loudly. Each kid expressed pure joy as the candy slid down through the tube into their Halloween buckets. Although it was freezing, it was a very good experience. 

Tiana Brown, current senior, said “It was a great experience just to see the kids dressed up in costumes and still make them smile through the hard times.”
