Students stage sit-in at THS

On Thursday, October 1, small groups of Tehachapi High School students and parents staged a sit-in style protest at THS. Some students brought easy-ups and tents to keep out of the sun; others just sat under trees. The sit-in was prompted by the decision of the TUSD School Board to maintain the virtual learning platform until December 18, conforming to Governor Newsom's tier-system guidelines for reopening schools. The peaceful protest provided an opportunity for the students to visit with classmates and work on their Chromebooks using THS' free WiFi.
