The pool is back

Hollywood High School’s swimming pool will be opening up again. The pool is expected to open at the beginning of February. 

The pool has been under construction for more than two years. The pool was expected to open July  2019. The process was slowed down because there were many things that needed to be fixed and inspected.

“Long story short the pool is almost ready they are just doing some final concrete work around the edge of it and then they have to do some touch up tile work,” said Pacino Furioso, assistant principal. “Then, they will have some inspectors look at it one last time to see if everything is okay. We are really hoping that the pool will be open by early February.”

The pool will not only be open to students but it will also be open to the community. PE classes will also be taking advantage of the pool. 

Hollywood’s swim team will finally be able to practice in the pool. They have been practicing at Bernstein’s pool. 

Hollywood is looking for a lifeguard. Those who would like to sign up or have any questions on what is needed to become a lifeguard please see Mr. Furioso. Students can also look for the message on Schoology for more information.
