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.

The AP Exams are here

LAUSD’s Superintendent Austin Beautner has announced that all schools are to remain closed until health officials decide that it is safe for us to come back. With that being the situation across the nation, College Board has released a new AP testing schedule. If students feel like they are not ready to take the exam the weeks of May 11th and May 18th they can make up for it the week of June 5th.

College Board has cut down all exams to 45 minutes as students will only be given the Free Response portion of the test. Students have two options when it comes to completing the exam. The first option is to type it and submit it using any device that has an internet connection. The second option is to handwrite it, take a picture of it, and submit it using any device that has an internet connection. College Board is recommending students to sign in to their account 30 minutes before the testing time in order to have time to work out any technology-related issues.

If you do not have a device to take and submit your exams, College Board will provide you with one as long as you fill the following form by April 24, 2020:Device Request Form.

The following charts are the testing dates and times for this year’s AP exams.

Celebrate Virtual Spirit Week

Celebrate Virtual Spirit Week

Joan Kim

Editor-in-Chief

Since schools are currently closed, the ASB announced a virtual spirit week in order for students to connect with other peers safely at home. “One of our biggest goals for the rest of the school year is to keep the Sheiks’ spirit up. I am sure that this approach will make everyone still feel a part of the school. This will also remind them to keep their heads up.” said SAS Senior Nicole Kaye Agustin. With different themes from April 13-18, there are many opportunities to participate and interactions will be available @hwoodsheiks on Instagram. 

The schedule will first start out with Movie Monday in which students can take a picture or record themselves watching their favorite movie. On Tuesday, students can post their funniest snapchat or video and tag @hwoodsheiks in order to be featured. On Wednesday, students can recreate their baby pictures, feel nostalgic and tag their photo. 

On Thursday, students can share a picture of their favorite quarantine snack such as Hot Cheetos, donuts etc. On Friday, students can reflect on their favorite memory such as watching or playing school games, assembly events, field trips and more. On Saturday, beauty gurus and students can share their skin care routine which can give inspiration and tips for other students. Lastly on Sunday, you can virtually “bring your pet to school” by sharing pictures or videos which will be a cute experience for every Sheik.    

Hollywood looks into postponing senior events

Hollywood looks into postponing senior events

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. 

Senior packages update

Senior packages update

Chronicle Reporter

As you know, Hollywood High School Seniors, like many other schools have been affected due to the coronavirus. Seniors have been waiting and excited to receive yearbooks, school shirts, prom tickets, and other items. We know that everyone did not purchase the same package. Some students may have paid in full and some are still making payments. So we understand that students are concerned with the status. Please be assured that as soon as an update is available, students will be notified immediately. If there are questions about refunds, event cancellations, or delays in receiving items, we look forward to providing more information and answers to your questions as soon as we learn more.

Due to novel Corona virus, we are to stay at home and do online classes. This is not a break! Seniors are to complete assignments and pass with at least a C in their A – G required courses. If you’ve already completed a course and are taking it again, there is no real worry for the class, however, if you are planning on being accepted to a college then you need to have a good grade in every class.

As for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, you need to do all of your work! You are required to have a certain amount of credits in order to go on to the next grade.

Lastly, if you have any questions message your counselors.

One less thing to worry about

One less thing to worry about

Guadalupe Dominguez Trujillo

Chronicle Reporter

This period of quarantine to stop the spread of COVID-19 has caused the student body to worry not only for their grades but the AP exams. For precaution, all LAUSD schools will remain closed until May 1. Meaning the doors of Hollywood will open just days before the AP exams start taking place.

The College Board has decided not to postpone the AP Exams. Instead, they have shortened all exams to a  45-minute free-response exam. It was also announced that students will only be tested on what they learned prior to the closure of there, meaning everything learned up until the first week of March. In addition to that, a second test date will be added. So students can either pick to take the exam the date set before the closure of the schools or take it at a later date.

In order to prepare students, the College Board has set up online classes. They will be covering all AP courses from AP English Literature to AP Biology. For the schedule of these courses visit the Advanced Placement Youtube channel linked below. If students still feel unprepared they will be allowed to not take the AP exam with no penalty.
