Golden Hills Elementary School

March 2021

Golden Hills Vision:

Golden Eagles grow together, learn with passion, act with kindness, and change the world!

Message from the Principal:

Golden Hills is back to five days a week in person classes! Eighty percent of our school is in person learning and twenty percent is continuing with distance learning! We are so happy to see our groups A and B becoming one class and to have new teachers teaching in person! Welcome Mr. Wong, Miss Barrera, Miss Cox and Miss Weston to the Golden Hills staff! . Mrs. Russell is now teaching an in person class.

Students must arrive on campus after 7:45. Class begins right at 8:15. Please do not arrive before 7:45, we do not have supervision. A grab n go breakfast is available for all students.

School is dismissed at 1:00. Please get there a little before 1:00. Our dismissal will take a little longer with all of our students on campus, please be patient. Helen Wilcox's dismissal is at 1:15 so the parking lot will be really full if you are running late.

There is very limited bussing available. If you are in need of transportation you must fill out a bus transportation application form. There is a waitlist at this time.

Thank you to all of the Golden Hills staff. students and families for being flexible and patient during these exciting transitions!

Parent Advisory LCAP & Data Review Meetings


The Local Control Accountability Plan is a yearly report that school districts create that includes how it serves the students of different populations, but particularly those living in poverty, foster youth and students who are learning English. The LCAP is meant to help our district set priorities based on community input, and explain how it's using state money. Come be part of the conversation! We have virtual ZOOM meetings on Thursday, March 18th and March 31st from 5:30-6:30 pm. Please let your student's teacher know or call the office if you would like to attend. Thank you!
