NEW POLICY Regarding After School Gates and CLOSED CAMPUS!

When we return from Spring Break, we will pilot a procedure to keep gates locked until the end of the school day. The times the gate will open after school will be as follows:

Regular Bell Schedule: 2:15 PM

Early Release Schedule: 1:15 PM

Minimum Day Schedule: 12:45 PM

This policy change does not impact kindergarten, students will continue to be release at the gate adjacent to kindergarten directly to parents/guardians.

This new procedure does not impact the beginning of school. We are continuing to evaluate existing practice regarding open versus closed campus policies in the light of concerns regarding school safety.

We continue to work as a community to insure that Golden is a safe place to learn and grow.

Golden receives 2018 California Distinguished School Award!

The Placentia Yorba Linda School District along with the California Department of Education are proud to honor Golden Elementary for the outstanding accomplishment of receiving a California Distinguished School Award. This is one of the state of California's top honors. To learn more please click HERE.

Golden Gold Ribbon School Plaque: 
We are so very proud to announce and display our new Gold Ribbon School plaque! In 2016, the Golden Eagles were identified by the California Department of Education (CDE) as a Gold Ribbon School for their outstanding educational programs and practices. Below, Golden Elementary School's principal and assistant principal, Roann Turk (left) and Liana Neuland (right), stand proudly next to the new plaque.

Clever Dashboard for Students: Starting with the 2017-2018 school year, PYLUSD began using Clever to provide students with a dashboard of buttons to access online applications. Students login to the Clever dashboard at https://clever.com/in/pylusd with their district email address and password. The picture below is an example of what the Clever dashboard looks like. An application is started by clicking its button. The dashboard for a student will only show the buttons that the student can use.

Golden PTA Volunteer Opportunities: 
Are you a new Golden parent or a returning parent who would like to become more involved in Golden PTA? There are some great volunteer opportunities on the various PTA committees for next year. Click HERE to email our PTA for more details.

Procedures for the Newest Electronic Devices: 
Who would have thought that watches would be used for purposes other than telling time? That day has come! "Smart Watches" just like "Smart Phones" need to be off and in the student's backpack during the instructional day. At the end of the day, they may use the watch or the phone. During the academic day, calls to parents should originate with the teacher, nurse, administration or other school personnel. Back to the Future seems to be today!

Top Places to Work Honor: 
The Orange County Register awarded Placentia Yorba Linda Unified School District as one of the Top Work Places of 2017!!
