A seven minute video was released by Hollywood High, showcasing the school’s many attributes. The tour was led by Dr. Reid, Mr. Dovlatian, and Ms. Nezu. In this virtual tour you get to see the campus students and staff members walk through everyday. We get glimpses of every SLC and all they have to offer. We also get to see different rooms where the creativity of students get to shine like the choir room, the recording studios, H studios, theater class, and the auditorium. The video is a great representation of all that Hollywood is and with the pandemic still going on it may be a good assistance for incoming freshmen to be familiar with the campus.

With the pandemic of the coronavirus, 2020 seniors were disappointed with the idea that perhaps prom and graduation weren’t going to happen in the ways that were expected. Jokes even started to surface on the app TikTok about prom and graduation being held on a video chat. But Hollywood High Seniors may still have a shot at a movie like prom and graduation. 

On April 3, 2020 families received a voicemail from Dr. Reid reminding students to catch up on work and to remain on a regular schedule. The voicemail ended with a message regarding prom and graduation. “Finally, if we don’t reopen school by May 1st, we are working on rescheduling our graduation and prom for the first week of August, before students leave for college.” Dr. Reid said. With the coronavirus being an ongoing epidemic, no certain date has been assigned to any of these events.

LAUSD made the announcement that schools would be closed until May 1, 2020. With this being announced, access to a computer has become crucial for students since all work being assigned by teachers will now be given via Schoology, Google Classroom, and even live video chats through things like ZOOM. Teachers and faculty members have been asking around if any student is in need of a chromebook to complete their courses and be successful in their classes through this pandemic. The school will be providing chromebooks Wednesday and Thursday from 11 am to 3 pm. In order to recieve a chromebook you will need your school I.D. and a parent to sign off the chromebook. Please notify your teacher if you are in need of a chromebook ASAP so you can be added to the list.

Killing time during the quarantine

Killing time during the quarantine

With LAUSD schools shut down due to the COVID-19 epidemic students were let go for two weeks. This being said learning and school work is still a requirement for the students and teachers during those two weeks. But besides all the school work that was assigned to students, there are other ways to distract yourself. On March 15, 2020 Mayor Eric Garcetti made the announcement that public places like dine-in restaurants, entertainment venues, and gyms were all going to be closed to the public. This means that most activities to kill time during this quarantine will now have to be in the comfort of your own home. 

To help make this quarantine experience a bit more bearable here’s some things to do while you’re trapped inside :

  • Music:
  • Without disturbing your surrounding neighbors, pick up an instrument and practice.
  • Sing ‘When Will My Life Begin’ from Tangled cause we are all feeling like Rapunzel right about now.
  • Social Media: 
  • With Tik Tok being a trend right now learn some Tik Tok dances and have fun with it. 
  • Creativity: 
  • Try new makeup and hair styles. You never know what creative side you got in you until you try. 
  • Do any form of art projects. Paint, scrap booking, coloring books, or draw.
  • Rearrange your room to make it look like a completely new setting.
  • Read or even write a book. 
  • Movie Night Everynight?:
  • Watch a new movie everyday. (All those long movies you decided to avoid in the past will now come in handy.)
  • Stay in Touch:
  • Use apps like FaceTime, Skype, and Google Hangouts to talk to all your friends cause 2 weeks is a lot of time without them. 
  • Family Time: 
  • Play board games with your family. Do things like puzzles and charades. 
  • Food:
  • Being considerate of the food available in your household, try a new recipe. Whether it be in your cooking or baking skills. 

These two weeks might feel quite lengthy but keeping your spirits up will help with everything going on. Simple things like washing our hands for 20 or more seconds (you can also choose to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ twice) can make a huge difference. So rest up during these two weeks, catch up on all missing work, keep track of all work being assigned by teachers, and stay safe and healthy.
