Upcoming Holiday Break Testing & Travel Requirements

As we begin to look forward to this year’s holidays and school closures, we want to share some important information with you regarding our plans for student testing, travel guidelines, remote learning, quarantine requirements, and so on. As we have seen in the past year and a half, it is of the utmost importance that we take all precautions when returning to campus after holiday breaks as we know many families travel and see family and friends that they are not exposed to on a regular basis. We will be adding a required student testing window during each holiday break, and requiring two days of remote learning prior to reopening campus to allow for all test results to be processed. For the upcoming Thanksgiving and Winter breaks, the Task Force has approved the guidelines below.

Student Testing Requirements & Remote Learning Days

All students (and faculty/staff) must have proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test prior to returning to campus following holiday breaks. In order to accommodate this requirement, please review the dates and designated remote learning days below.

  • Thanksgiving Break

    • Saturday, November 27th - Monday, November 29th: Testing required for all students. We will provide more details regarding testing options as soon as they have been finalized - our plan is to provide both on-campus testing and options for you to test on your own.

    • Monday, November 29th - Tuesday, November 30th: Designated remote learning days for all students ECE-6th Grade.

    • Wednesday, December 1st: On-Campus learning and student COVID-19 testing resumes. (Students will be tested twice this week).

  • Winter Break

    • Sunday, January 2nd - Monday, January 3rd: Testing required for all students. We will provide more details regarding testing options as soon as they have been finalized - our plan is to provide both on-campus testing and options for you to test on your own.

    • Wednesday, January 5th: On-Campus learning and student COVID-19 testing resumes. (Students will be tested twice this week).

Travel & Quarantine Guidelines

All unvaccinated students will be required to quarantine for 7 days if traveling domestically or internationally by plane, and show proof of a negative COVID-19 test result prior to returning to campus.

  • Thanksgiving Break

    • Wednesday, November 24th: All unvaccinated students traveling domestically or internationally by plane must return home by this date in order to return to campus on Wednesday, November 1st.

We hope this information is helpful as you move forward with your holiday planning and will safeguard our community during these highly vulnerable times throughout the year. Feel free to contact the Task Force at taskforce@hshla.org with any questions.

Update Regarding Faculty/Staff Vaccination Requirements

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in California and Los Angeles County, and the virus continues to pose significant risks and uncertainty for our community, Hollywood Schoolhouse will be requiring all employees to be immunized against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, for the 2021-22 school year.

We are adopting this policy to promote the health, safety, and well-being of our employees, students, and the broader school community after closely studying recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and advisories from our state and local health authorities. Also consistent with prevailing guidance, physical distancing, mask-wearing, and frequent hand-washing and cleaning likely will continue to be crucial for daily campus life for the foreseeable future.

Financial Support for Families Impacted by COVID-19

Hollywood Schoolhouse has established a COVID-19 emergency tuition assistance fund as well as other options to help families who need financial assistance during this time. We understand that families may find themselves in a unique position this year and we want to do everything we can to help keep our community intact. There are a variety of options available including alternative payment plans and emergency tuition assistance. To explore these options further, email assistance@hshla.org.
