Police Investigating 'Scam' Threat At Sioux Falls Roosevelt

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — A Sioux Falls Roosevelt High School student is singing about social distancing.

Tyler Tillman is a senior at Roosevelt. His choir class required everyone to rewrite a song with quarantine lyrics then perform it. Tillman chose the song, ‘Good Riddance (Time of Your Life),’ by Green Day.

In a Facebook message Tyler Tillman said, “One thing that I didn’t think I would say is that I actually miss school. I miss seeing all of my friends on a regular basis. It feels off to me that I don’t get to see them. Feeling like I will miss graduation and not get to walk to get my diploma, is not a good feeling either.”

His message continued by saying, “But I’m not saying quarantine is all bad. I’m basically treating it like a mini vacation, so to speak. I can relax at home and do my homework then go about my day doing whatever I want. Quarantine is painted in a bad light, but there are upsides to it. But, a majority of my time spent in quarantine is missing the company of my peers.”

Many students have turned to song to cope with not seeing friends or being able to participate in their school activities. Another KELOLAND high school senior wrote a song about her experience as well.
