Kindergarten through 6th-grade students may arrive on campus at 7:35 AM. School begins at 7:50 AM. Teachers begin picking up students at 7:45 AM. Students arriving after 7:50 AM will be considered tardy.

All students are to be dropped off at one of Golden's five entry point gates for safety reasons. Parents will remain outside the gates. The Valet Zone in the front of the campus is the only area designated for vehicle pick up or drop off of students.


Parents should pick up students no later than 15 minutes after dismissal. If using the Valet Zone in the front of the campus, please have your children's names clearly displayed in your windshield.


Our district offers a 2-year developmental kindergarten class. Golden TK students attend Golden Elementary for the first year, and then Golden for the second traditional kindergarten year. For additional information, please contact the district.

Parking Lot

When picking up or dropping off a student early, please be mindful of the red zone and bus zone. The Golden Parking Lot is reserved for Golden Staff members, with one visitor spot. If you plan to volunteer in a classroom, please park on the street in front of the school. Thank you!


The Valet program allows you to drop off/pick up your students at the curb in front of the school. In order for this program to be successful, there are a few important rules to follow.


All adults who come on campus must sign in and out at the office and wear a visitor's badge. A driver's license will be required.

Items Left at Home

Currently, parents may not drop off items students have forgotten at home in the office.


We are currently not accepting late lunches. Please make every attempt to have your child bring their own lunch. Thank you!
