CAR LOOP SAFETY

We are asking for your cooperation with traffic flow and the safety of children during morning and afternoon pick up.
  • Please follow the law and our signage when entering and exiting the car loop. If not, you may be ticketed.
  • If you choose to park, please walk your children through the crosswalk to the front of the school and do not drop them in the parking lot.
  • Please pull forward and do not stop at the lower door during afternoon pick up. Students have been instructed to walk up to the fence and use the crosswalk, and not to enter cars at the lower door area.
  • Do not call or motion for your kids to come to your car other than through the crosswalk which is supervised.
  • Be vigilant and avoid distractions by putting cell phones and other electronic devices away as a one second distraction may cause you to miss seeing a child crossing.
  • Please be respectful to the adults who are monitoring the car loop daily to keep all children safe.

SCHOOL TIME CHANGE SURVEY FOR 2016/2017

Gold Rush Elementary School is gathering input from the school community about a possible change of school hours starting August of 2016. Gold Rush is considering changing the school hours to 8:30AM - 3:30 PM based on prior staff and parent feedback. Students would enter the building starting at 8:30 AM when the first bell rings. The tardy bell would ring at 8:35 AM. This change would eliminate before school transitions for some students and allow others to participate in additional after school activities. Existing bus routes, the length of the school day and before and after school care would remain the same with the earlier start time. Please complete this survey by Tuesday, January 19th. Your input is appreciated.

SHADE STRUCTURE UPDATE

We wanted to update the community regarding our proposed shade structure that was funded with proceeds from the Digger Dash. We met with the district to discuss logistics, such as size of structure and placement on the property. We plan to meet again when the snow thaws to firm things up and schedule the installation.

CHANGE IN BUS ROUTE

Beginning January 19, 2016, Gold Rush will be serviced by Route 189 (Bear) replacing Route 180 (Dolphin). Please contact transportation with any questions:

Bob Buch – Manager 303-387-0574 rebuch@dcsdk12.org
David Romero – Supervisor 303-387-0580 dromero@dcsdk12.org

COLD WEATHER REMINDERS

Just a reminder to dress students appropriately for Colorado’s ever changing weather. In winter months, a warm morning can quickly change into a winter blizzard. Since students are outside before and after school as well as during recess, appropriate dress would include hats, gloves and winter coats. Snow boots should also be worn for outdoor activities in the winter.


NO ANIMALS ALLOWED ON CAMPUS

This is just a gentle reminder that animals are not allowed on school property. Thanks for your understanding.
