    Currently several areas are temporarily disrupted for construction of our new building.  A fence surrounds the construction area to keep students out of the area.

    Please do not enter the construction area and be extra cautious and safety minded whenever you visit the campus.

    The Sonora School Board is seeking “Parent “ and “Community” representatives to serve a four-year term on the Citizens Oversight Committee. The purpose of the Citizens Oversight Committee (COC) is to inform the public concerning the expenditures of bond revenues. The committee normally meets on a quarterly basis. An interested citizen would need to be a parent who has a child enrolled at Sonora Elementary or a person living within the Sonora Elementary school district boundaries. Please contact Leigh Shampain @ 532-5491 for further information.

    Please park in marked spaces when you come to register your student.  Due to construction, we may have unusual traffic and ask that you please park safely in marked stalls when you visit campus.

    Please use caution in the parking lot during drop off and pick up times.  Our parking lot attendants may ask you to pull closer to the vehicle in front of you in the pick up lanes in order to alleviate traffic congestion at the parking lot entrance and intersection behind you.  Your cooperation is always greatly appreciated, and helps to make drop off and pick up times flow much smoother!

    Observe the traffic before entering the parking lot.  If the entry to the parking lot is full, please stay in the turn lane on Greenley Road until it is clear to proceed into the parking lot.  We must keep the intersection clear for emergency vehicles.

    • Use the center pick up lane for exiting traffic.  Do not allow students to enter or exit vehicles if you are in the center lane for their safety.  Parking is not allowed in the center lane as this will block access for emergency vehicles.
    • Use the left and right lanes to stop and drop off students.  Students should exit the vehicle and go to the crosswalk.
    • Crossing Guards will direct traffic at crosswalks to maximize pedestrian safety.  Please observe the traffic directions of the crossing guards.
    • No parking is allowed in the pick up lanes during drop off and pick up times.  For Regular Day Schedules: 7:30-8:20 a.m., 1:40-2:05 p.m., and 2:30-3:00 p.m.   For Minimum Day Schedules:  7:30-8:20 a.m., 12:40-1:20 p.m., and 1:30-2:00 p.m.
    • All cars in the pick up lanes must have the driver present during drop off and pick up times.
    • If you must leave your vehicle, please exit the pick up lanes and park your vehicle in a designated parking space. 
    • Please keep the marked Bus Lane clear, and do not crowd or block the bus lane as this will cause delays in student transportation.
