Front of Louisville Elementary School

The story of the bell...

The iconic bell in front of Louisville Elementary School has become a hallmark of many first and last day of school photos, but did you know the history of the bell dates back over 140 years?

The Louisville History Museum researched the history of the bell and shared their findings with us. It is strongly believed the bell dates back to 1881, which is the year that the Louisville Grade School at Spruce and Jefferson opened. This is now the site of Memory Square Park. Local historian Carolyn Conarroe did research and states in her book "Louisville Legends" that the bell dates back to 1881. Also, the bell can be seen in the school's bell tower in historic photos that are from before 1903, which is the year that the school was remodeled and enlarged. This makes the bell one of the oldest artifacts from Louisville's history, as Louisville was founded in 1878 and incorporated in 1882. The bell was manufactured by Goulds Mfg. Co. of Seneca Falls, NY. It is 33 inches in diameter and weighs approximately 700 pounds. When Louisville Elementary School opened its doors in 1964, the bell was relocated to the front of the building. Now our community can enjoy this piece of Louisville history each time they visit our school!

A lot is happening in the Boulder Valley School District. As you may have heard, we have been working hard on the All Together for All Students Strategic Plan. Following all of the craziness of the past couple years, we will be working to bring you back up to speed – and I’m excited to share that we are seeing results, especially at the previously underserved schools where we have invested additional resources and support.

Welcome back BVSD families! We are excited to welcome our students and are hopeful to start this school year with a more typical health outlook.  

Although there continues to be COVID-19 infections in our communities, due to the protective factors of vaccination (BVSD COVID vaccine data) and prior infections, the majority of individuals are not experiencing severe illness or hospitalization. And, as we begin the transition from pandemic COVID to more routine communicable disease control methods, how we handle COVID-19 in school will change too.
