An emergency staff meeting was held yesterday after school to discuss the basics of the Coronavirus and actions to take to prevent from infection. Also, teachers discussed what might happen if LAUSD schools closed for two weeks due to the global outbreak. As result, students would complete their work online. If they cancel schools, then extended two weeks would be added into June to make up the days. Teachers aren’t sure if and when this would go into effect, so in the meantime, students should stay sanitized and updated in the news.

Coronavirus vs Hollywood High

Chronicle Reporter

Generally, during this time of year, students are preparing for track meets, prom, and even graduation. However, things are different now that the deadly disease called the coronavirus has touched our state, city, and also the way we attend school at Hollywood High. This unwelcome rival has not only closed the school, but it has caused us to limit our ability to learn traditionally. Students have learned that one of the ways to combat the virus is to practice social distancing. Social distancing is unusual for a lot of kids. On a good note, Hollywood Sheiks have come up with creative ways to keep busy during the quarantine, such as playing online bingo and other social media games, and some are even taking time to do school work.

Veganism in Hollywood

Veganism in Hollywood

Veganism is making its round at Hollywood High.

Vegan options are now available for lunch that feature whole grain cheese pizza wedges, bean and cheese pupusas, and a plant based burger called the “Possible” burger. It helps prevent students that don’t eat meat from skipping lunch. I myself, have been pescatarian for seven months and whenever I have a salad for lunch I would have to take out every bit of chicken and eat it plain.

In addition, Hollywood High’s Vegan club is teaming up with book club to create a cook book just for vegans. This is well needed since the rate the rate of veganism is increasing in the world.

Going vegan is beneficial in various ways and will lead to longevity in life. For example, a vegan diet protects against cancers, lowers your risk of heart disease, decreases anxiety, improves your skin, and your quality of sleep. A vegan diet consists plant milk, nuts, seeds, salad, tofu, and other minimally processed meat substitutes. Eating animal products aren’t safe because they contain harmful contaminants including dioxins, mercury, and bacteria that affects our health. It’s not as difficult as you think to stop eating meat. You would still get enough protein and if you really love animals then you have to stop consuming them.
