BVSD looking to reach parents of students at Gold Hill and Jamestown Elementary Schools

Gold Hill and Jamestown Elementary Schools are closed this week due to the #CalWoodFire and the #LefthandCanyonFire.

Knowing that it will likely be a few days before it is safe to return and that it is important, especially during traumatic situations like this, to keep things as normal as possible for our kids, we are working to move students to schools outside of the evacuation area. Students will be able to temporarily attend Nederland or Flatirons elementary schools, depending on their situation.

School staff is working to personally reach out to all families today to gather information about their situation and determine how we can best support their students, in terms of school placement, transportation and anything else they might need.

We, of course, understand that many of our families’ situations may vary greatly. Some of our families may be staying with friends or family members in other parts of the district and beyond. We will work with everyone, individually, to provide as much flexibility and support as we can during this difficult time.

If you are impacted and haven’t heard from the school year, reach out to your school administrator. The principal of Gold Hill and Jamestown Elementary is Scott Boesel. He can be reached at scott.boesel@bvsd.org.
