Students and teachers alike were full of school spirit. Many dressed in their Hawaiian shirts and some went all out and wore hats, sunglasses, or brought a camera along. The past two days of spirit week were also a success. Day one being pajama day and day two being duo day. The days that follow are vintage day on Nov 7, and roll call day on Nov 8 with colors designated to each grade level.

Hollywood High School has officially started releasing their 2019 school Yearbooks out to the student body on Wednesday, May 22. Students are very excited because they have been waiting on this issue of the yearbook since the pre-sale started way back in Sept of 2018 for the low price of $55. Or, if it came in your senior package you don’t have to worry about it.

Many people were surprised at the fact that the opportunity to purchase the yearbook for $55 was never announced, did you know this?–QxJjQ-8a5VbcJ-l003tp50tkHxxwOnMw/viewform?usp=sf_link

TCA senior, Natalia Torres, says “I like the cover, it gives me that iconic Hollywood feel and I’m so glad it came in my package so I don’t have to pay it again.”

If you were looking to purchase the Yearbook as of right now, you need to pay $90. Just come to the student store with your money and school ID in hand and you can leave home with an official Hollywood High School Yearbook.

Mercury scare temporarily closes two classrooms

Posted on May 15, 2019 by in Announcements


Alex Glebov
Chronicle Reporter

As some students have noticed, Rooms 310 and 311 have been sealed of with yellow tape to stop people from entering. The reason for the seal was that Frank Muniz, plant manager, had contacted the Office of Environmental Health and Safety to test the classrooms to see if mercury was present.

The reason for the test was that a teacher in one of those classrooms had felt ill and Assistant Principal Pacino Furioso suspected a thermostat breaking and causing a mercury leak, as there was a case of a thermostat breaking before.

Both classes were relocated just to not take any chances with a potential mercury leak, and to give time to OEHS to come in and test the classrooms with a state-of-the-art device for mercury. The tests showed that there was no mercury leak in any of the classrooms and everything will go back to the usual very soon.
