Golden Hills is a closed campus, therefore we require all visitors to sign in at the office before going on to the campus. 


Due to Board Policy and California Ed Code: Students are not allowed to have cell phones at Golden Hills. If your student has a compelling reason to bring their cell phone to school, they must turn in their cell phone to the school office. Students can pick up their cell phones from the office at dismissal.


Please make sure that your student knows how they are going home each day. It is difficult to get messages to students without interrupting the instruction of others. Teachers and staff will expect students to go home the same way each day unless the student has a note saying otherwise.

Also...if a student is riding the bus to a friend's house, we must have a note from both homes. We want to ensure that all parents are aware of the plans.


Golden Hills has established a Bully Hotline for students to call and report bullying incidents here at school. All student calls will be kept confidential and all incidents will be investigated.

We encourage students to continue reporting bullying incidents to school officials; however, if they feel more comfortable, they may call the hotline from home at 532-6000, ext. 2609. Please remember to leave your name when calling.


Class Parties/Birthday Recognition - If you decide to bring a treat to share with the class, we prefer nutritious treats. All treats must be store bought and will be held in the office till after lunch.

Not Allowed - We do not allow Hot Cheetos or Taki's at Golden Hills due to the color dye they use. It is difficult to get out of the carpet when stepped on, and it gets on the computer keyboards.

We do not allow sodas or glass bottles/containers at school.

Lost and Found - Lost and found items are located in our cafeteria. Very small items (jewelry, glasses, etc.) or money are turned into the school office.

Animals on Campus - Please do not bring animals on campus without prior approval from the school principal. This includes after school pick-up.
