Not many kids can say they go to school in a Victorian-era school house, but Gold Hill Elementary School students can. This year marks 150 years of this unique learning environment for K-5 students. Since 1873, Gold Hill Elementary School has remained in operation, making it the oldest continually-operating school in Colorado.
Late last month, a crowd of New Vista High School families, teachers, Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) Board members, District staff, and community members gathered to officially celebrate the start of construction for the high school’s new building.
On Wednesday, October 11, the Boulder Valley School District will be pulling all of its schools together, under one roof, for the BVSD Showcase. This is the first time BVSD has held an event like this before the open enrollment season, which begins on November 1.
You may have heard that BVSD is offering free meals for all students, but did you know that this applies to breakfast as well? BVSD schools are offering free breakfast this year; ask your school when and where to get breakfast each day.
In today's complex and challenging world, it's crucial to address sensitive issues like suicide prevention for students in grades K-12. The BVSD Health Services team explores the importance of accessing resources within and outside of BVSD to ensure the safety and mental health of our children.
Thanks to Colorado voters, school meals will be free for all BVSD students beginning in the 2023-24 school year. Even though lunch is now free, it is still very important that families complete the free and reduced meal application, as it waives and reduces fees district-wide for families, can impact transportation for some families, and impacts important funding for individual schools.
The Boulder Valley School District has developed a new Strategic Plan. This ambitious, exciting and comprehensive effort will guide BVSD for the next five years and aims at bringing everyone together to meet the needs of all students.
