Dear SOS: Hollywood High School counts among its alumnae Carol Burnett, Suzanne Somers and my sister Barbara. I know at least one of these would love the Hollywood High Sweet Roll recipe, circa 1970. --BOB Dear Bob: Good try--it worked. Here's the City School Sweet Rolls we've had in our files for some time with tremendous success. If it isn't the exact recipe, it will be close enough to trigger fond memories.

We are writing in response to a letter from Hinda Lee Sheffer (May 1), regarding the Hollywood Desert Storm Parade to be held on Sunday. She stated in her letter that there is to be no grandstand seating or parking for the disabled wishing to attend the parade. Members of the Junior Class of Hollywood High School are providing parking on our campus for the parade as a fund-raiser for our senior prom. The price will be $10 ($8 for senior citizens and the disabled). Although we are not able to offer grandstand seating, we will do our best to help people obtain good viewing locations in front of the school.

Hundreds of Hollywood High School students and their parents were summoned to a meeting on campus Wednesday night to learn about the consequences -- academic and legal -- of frequently missing school, part of an effort to reduce student absences that are costing the Los Angeles Unified School District millions of dollars. The students called to the meeting were among the nearly 40% at the school with 15 absences last year and 10 so far this year, some excused and others truancies.
Hollywood High School keeps its doors open 12 months a year to ease overcrowding. The year-round schedule allows the campus to run hundreds more students through its cramped classrooms. It also chips away at their education. Teachers skip pages of material, assign less homework and give fewer tests because their school year has been slashed by 17 days. Hundreds of pupils take the Stanford 9 exam shortly after returning from an eight-week vacation.

The trespassing charge could result in a six-month jail term and $1,000 fine, said Deputy City Atty. Bill Sterling.

A health clinic that will serve Hollywood High School's 3,000 students opened Wednesday with a celebration hosted by the school's faculty and staff. The free clinic will be staffed 2 1/2 days a week by a doctor, nurse, mental health clinician and health educator affiliated with Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. Many students who have no access to health care will be able to get services such as physical examinations and health information, school officials said.
