Senior Packages Update

Cheyan Metcalfe 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

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.

Enjoy a delicious meal and practice social distancing at the same time! Chipotle is now offering delivery services due to COVID-19.

You can now order your go-tos through DoorDash, UberEats, Postmates, and the Chipotle website itself. To celebrate and promote the launch of the delivery service, Chipotle is making the delivery service free on orders over $10!

Sadly, the delivery services will not be serving fountain drinks. There are still other drink options such as bottled water, Izze sparkling juice, and other bottled drinks.

Please practice social distancing to flatten the curve. Delivery services and drive thru-s are good ways to get yourself the food that you need while still being safe and keeping others safe as well. Wash your hands thoroughly before digging into your delicious meal!

On Monday, March 23, LAUSD announced that schools will remain closed till May 1. Schools were going to open on March 30 but COVID-19 cases kept extending more over time. Therefore, keeping schools closed will help prevent students from getting the virus going, within and leaving school campus. “I wish I could tell you it will all be back to normal sometime soon, but it does not look like that will be the case,” Beutner states. The district is looking for ways to help students continue their education. Even though, many students are not satisfied with having school closed because of the amount of assignments being given while being stuck at  home. However, staying safe and healthy should always be a priority for everyone.

Staff discusses Coronavirus

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.

Prom is being held at the California Science Center this year! The Senior Council is readying up for the big event by having meetings and planning prom details. One of the most important details is music.

The Senior Council is taking music suggestions on their Instagram to ensure that songs played at prom are the best ones. Last year’s prom was highly talked about due to the issues with their DJ and song selections.

This year, the senior council is making sure to listen to their senior class to avoid that happening again. They want to give the senior class the best prom that they possibly can, so please submit song suggestions by direct messaging @hwood2020 on Instagram!

It is Hollywood High tradition to graduate in either a red cap and gown or a white cap and gown.

To be able to graduate in white a student must meets the requirements that make them eligible. The 2020 requirements are to have a cumulative grade point average of 3.300 as of Feb 21, 2020, met or have exceeded on SBAC/CAA English or Math during junior year, no more than 5 total days absent through May 22, 2020, and no Ds or Fails on final grades of fall semester or 15 week spring semester during senior year.

PAM Senior Delilah Peraza said,”The white cap and gown represents over-achievement and that’s why so many people want to wear white.” Peraza will be wearing red and said,”I think the chords are more important than the color of the cap and gown we wear.”

The strict deadline for the 2020 white cap and gown applications is Monday Mar 9, 2020.
