Our desire is to ensure that all students have the opportunity to be educated on a daily basis without interruption. We also desire to put in place policies and procedures to keep all of our students safe on campus. With these in mind, we are asking parents, siblings, relatives, and friends to no longer drop off food, snacks, money etc. at school during the day. Students can bring or purchase lunch, and eligible students can go off campus for lunch on specific days. However, dropping off lunches, snacks, money, Starbucks, etc. will no longer be allowed. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation in keeping Golden Valley High School a secure educational environment for all students.
