Principal's Message

Dear Bulldog students, parents, and community,


These are unprecedented times.  On Sunday, March 15, the announcement came that all Kern High School District schools would shut down until April 14.  This is in response to the worldwide pandemic of COVID-19, commonly called the coronavirus.  I take student safety very seriously and care about the health and well-being of every student and family in our community.


I want to encourage every person in the Golden Valley community to do five things to stop the spread of COVID-19.



Each teacher provided a packet of work to help students make academic progress during this extended closure.  It is important that all students commit to completing the assigned work.  Teachers are available via email, google classroom, Zoom, etc. to answer individual questions. 


Students should also limit screen time and READ!  Good books help pass the time.  You can get free digital copies of books via

All schools operated by KHSD will serve “grab and go” meals between the hours of 11:00 am to 1:00 pm Monday through Friday. Students can either receive meals at the drive-through location established at the bus-loading zone or walk to the pick-up location to receive lunch and breakfast for the following day. If driving, we ask that parents and students remain in their vehicles while Nutrition Services distributes meals to each child in the car. Students need to be present to receive their meals.


To comply with the request to “socially distance”, Golden Valley will have minimal staff during this time.  The office is closed, but phone calls will be accepted Monday through Friday from 7:30am-1:30pm until April 3, 2020.  After April 3rd, the school will be closed for the regularly scheduled Easter Break.  The school phone number is 661-827-0800.


Please follow the Bulldogs on social media for the latest news concerning the closure:  Golden Valley KHSD on Facebook and @GVBulldogs on Twitter.  You can also get the latest information via our website

We will get through these difficult and disruptive times.  We walk #BulldogSTRONG!!!


Mr. Helman
