Parents, if you choose to attend the high school football games, please be aware that it is your responsibility to supervise your children.  They should be sitting with you!  We LOVE our fans, and want to ensure their safety at all times.  Thank you for your support!  Go Timberwolves!

Attendance – The school requires a written note or a phone call to the office in case of an absence.  To help

ensure your child’s safety, children leaving school early or coming late must be cleared through the office.

Three unexcused absence(s) within a month is considered truant.  After seven unexcused absences within one

month truancy may be filed on your student. After ten unexcused absences in a school year the school district

may file a petition for civil action.

Early Release – Wednesday, September 12 (1:55) – Teacher Inservice

Goldendale Primary school is proud to be recognized as a Leader in Me School -

Each new school year brings opportunities; opportunities for academic growth but also opportunities for growth in all areas of development.  Although children must be knowledgeable when they graduate, they must also be healthy, engaged, responsible, and caring people.


The Leader in Me provides our school with the vision and language to lead the school in a way that addresses all areas of development. As each child discovers and develops his/her unique gifts and talents, they are given opportunities to lead. As leaders, they become active, engaged partners in their own education and their self-confidence, responsibility, and initiative grows. The children quickly understand the benefits of different gifts and talents; they learn to listen to new ideas, work together to achieve results, and motivate one another to be the best.


I look forward to sharing these new opportunities with you. Together, we will watch each and every child grow throughout the year.

School Breakfast and Lunch - Breakfast will be served from 7:45 - 8:05.

The daily cost is: Milk .45, Student breakfast 2.40, Student lunch 3.20, Adult breakfast 3.45, Adult lunch 4.45           

Visitors Pass – All visitors must report to the school office to check in when you enter the building.

Change of Routine -   Please send notes with children and/or inform them of after school plans. If your child has permission to ride a different bus or get off a bus at a different stop, or perhaps walk home with another student, you need to notify the school with a note stating that change or call by 1:00 p.m., 12:00 p.m. on Wednesdays.  Without a note, your child will go on his regular route.  Bus drivers will not allow extra riders without a note.     This cuts down on the interruptions to the classrooms for messages during the day.
