With Red Tide harming the west coast of Florida south of Pinellas County, fun times for Warriors on the water or at the beaches Labor Day weekend could possibly be affected.

Mr. Merker, chemistry teacher, stated, “Some places will be affected greatly, but it comes in pockets so I don’t think it’ll reach the bay in time.” Mr. Merker is worried about the fish in the ecosystem. 

One student said he’s not too concerned that Red Tide may ruin his fun. Andrew Dowling, 1oth grade, stated, “Yes, I go on the boat every Labor Day. Also, I don’t think it will affect us because too much water runs in and out of the bay every day.”
