    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.

  • UPDATE APRIL 3, 2020

    SES Parents/Staff,

    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.  

    Take care,

    Chris Boyles, Principal
