Starting March 30 students and teachers will have to follow a blocked schedule because schools in Los Angeles will remain closed due to COVID-19. Austin Beutner, the superintendent of LAUSD, announced on March 23 that schools would remain closed through May 1.
Teachers have been looking for different forms to communicate and teach their students.
Hollywood high has set a blocked schedule so that students can meet with their teachers on zoom. Zoom is a conference app where many users can meet with video.
Most teachers are new to this app but have been working to get all of their students on the app.
“I think having a conference on zoom with my teachers and peers will be helpful to all of us. I think it will make up for the lessons we’ve missed but I don’t think it’s a really good way to teach because it is not the same as being in a classroom,” said Aimar Aguilar, TCA, Junior.
Periods 1, 2, and 3 will be meeting on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 am- 2.30 pm and periods 4, 5, 6 will be meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students, please make sure to be on time to all of your conferences.
