Fatigue, disinclination, increased occurrences of musing, longing for liberation — these are all symptoms of infectious disease known as Senioritis. As the end of the year approaches, students and teachers alike are preparing themselves to ward off the crippling sickness. However, some seniors have started to show an early onset.

“I have yet to do any Spanish 4 homework,” one senior said, choosing to keep his identity anonymous, fearing repercussions from Senora Solorzano. While it is concerning, it is not uncommon. Many other seniors have begun to let school work go.

“The contents of my backpack are a notebook and a loose pencil,” Anna Kornreich, senior, said. Kornreich has been spending her days at school coming up with a ‘summer bucket list,’ and not really caring about what actually is happening in her classes.

Anna Kornreich utilizes her assignment notebook for her priorities.

Lack of caring often complements a lack of motivation. “I have no motivation to give you a quote,” Kayla Hubbell, senior, said when asked if she believed senioritis is real.

“Considering my classes, yes,” Nick Plamann, senior, answered.

Senioritis can really hinder academic success, but many seniors are not concerned due to already being accepted in college. When asked about how senioritis is affecting her grade, Sophie Looker, senior, said, “I forgot my Powerschool login.”

There are thirty days left in the trimester, and our thoughts are with all of those seniors who are being affected by this outbreak.
