Since April, even with stay-at-home orders and distance learning in place, Northport High School’s online publication, The Port Press, has been going strong. The staff, comprised of students from all grade levels, consists of an editing team, contributors and freelancers – all of which have been working hard to keep their school up to date on news surrounding their community and beyond.
Stories have ranged from an interview with Northport High School Principal Daniel Danbusky to discuss school closures to “Senior Spotlights.”
These students, along with their advisors, Danielle Milazzo and Debra Cavaliere, meet twice a week digitally via Google Meets to brainstorm, plan and create content. They even gained new staff members after reaching out to the school community via social media. Those new members have already created articles and videos, and are working on future podcasts.
The Port Press is active on social media, with robust Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts that reach different members of the school community. To get the latest high school news, head to www.nhsportpress.com
“They have been so active and involved so we really would like to recognize their hard work during this very crazy time,” Ms. Cavaliere said.
