To better serve their school’s bilingual student body, members of Riverhead High School’s student newspaper, The Riptide, are working to offer their online publication in Spanish as well as in English.

With that goal, the students created a Spanish version of the Wix website they launched in November, which they plan to populate with Spanish translations of their articles. 

“They are working to translate all of the articles themselves,” said adviser Samantha Mallahy. 

On average, The Riptide maintains a staff of 10 students who contribute articles on a variety of topics. Freelancers, including student-athletes, who cannot attend weekly meetings, provide sports content and photos.
