Horizon’s board room has been sealed shut, editors and writers are scattered across the DMV without means of face-to-face interaction, and our traditional paper can no longer easily be distributed to the Washington community.
Global temperatures are rising exponentially, and as such, the media and much of the world are taking a keen interest in the environment. Due to the increasing focus on reversing the damage done to the environment, institutions are taking steps to decrease their ecological footprint.
On March 12, Sidwell students laughed and played games outside of the Fox Den, celebrating what they believed would be a short break before returning to campus in early April.
In light of the COVID-19 outbreak and Sidwell’s ensuing Distance Learning Plan, the college admissions process — especially that of the junior class — has changed dramatically.
As the world navigates the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of Americans amid the college application process can no longer take the SAT nor the ACT, devaluing weeks to months of preparation.
With more than 1,000,000 people infected and 69,000 killed by COVID-19 in the United States alone, schools have closed nationwide and adopted a variety of online learning programs.
As the coronavirus pandemic spreads worldwide, one stricken victim particularly dear to many fans has been professional sports.
The coronavirus outbreak has affected all members of the Sidwell community, including its student-athletes, who, despite the cancellation of the spring sports season, remain committed to their athletic endeavors.

Campus journalism offers a special way of looking at Sidwell Friends and the people who give it life every day. A newspaper can make accessible, engaging and influential those facts and theories among us that might otherwise remain opaque, obscure or hidden.
Horizon’s 2019-2020 staff aspires to demonstrate in these pages the continuing relevance of words in print, and the scribe’s mode of observing Sidwell at work and at leisure: to do so candidly and tastefully, with a good-natured tolerance for the likelihood of sometimes sharply differing perspectives and in harmony with our best understanding of the law.
All this we propose to do while respecting the rights of our readers, correspondents, advertisers, advisers and writers of letters to the editors. We aim to produce a free and responsible Horizon, a task that no one living in our tormented times would claim is easy but which is our duty to address.
Horizon will not publish any writing considered to be defamatory, in poor taste or inappropriate. All articles are subject to final review by the faculty advisor. Opinion and review-style articles reflect the views of their respective writers.
