Sonora Elementary School is pleased to offer online registration for Transitional Kindergarten through 8th grade students for 2020-21 school year as an alternate to in-person registration during the COVID-19 closure. The online registration jumpstarts our traditional student enrollment process and is subject to verification before the enrollment process is complete. The registration is for new students that did not attend Sonora Elementary School for the 2019-20 school year. Students up to 7th grade who attended Sonora Elementary in 2019-20 are automatically enrolled for 2020-21.
Children who will be five years old between September 2, 2020 and December 2, 2020 are eligible to be registered for Transitional Kindergarten.
Children who are five years old on or before September 1, 2020 are eligible to be registered for Kindergarten.
Immunizations are required by the State of California and vary by grade level of the student. Information regarding what immunizations your child needs to register in school can be found by clicking here.
Proof of residency and medical history information will be requested during the online registration process. Please gather this information before you start to register a child.

UPDATE APRIL 3, 2020
With much sadness, it is my job to inform you all that the Sonora Elementary School District, in collaboration of a unified decision across Tuolumne County, will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Distance Learning and meal distribution will be in effect for the remainder of the 2019-2020 School Year.
It is important to understand we are not ending the school year and we are continuing the essential work of teaching and learning for all Sonora Elementary School students, through our teaching staff and resources at the County Level. We will continue to provide communication, information and learning resources through a variety of platforms.
