Is it possible to create quantum systems and the associated (states, MPOs, Hamiltonians) for a quantum system with different types of sites, e.g. a chain of alternating spin-1/2 sites and spin-1 sites?

I ask this with specific reference to the Kogut-Susskind staggered formulation of the Schwinger model, shown in Equation (2.3) in https://arxiv.org/abs/1305.3765. This model has alternating fermionic sites and "links" (which, for the sake of my work, can be thought of as spin-L sites, if I restrict the link values to be at most L in magnitude for some positive integer L). So in this case, I would like a chain of alternating fermionic sites and spin-1 sites.

Up until now, I have been using the formulation of the Schwinger model on spin-1/2 sites (which follows from applying the Jordan-Wigner transformation to the above formulation), shown in Equation (2.6) in the same paper. However, I would like to know if it is possible to use ITensor to work with the original lattice formulation.
