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 online 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.
Interdistrict transfer requests are started at the district of residence. Please refer to your local district to initiate the request.
