Parents & Community Newsletter

September 4, 2020 - Week 24

Please remember Sonoma Valley Unified's school sites are currently closed to the public for community safety. This includes all of our fields, whether access is restricted by a locked gate or not. We must stop the community spread of the virus in order to reopen our schools. On behalf of the entire community, we ask that you respect this decision and the related County public health orders. Thank you for your support and understanding!

Sonoma Valley USD is providing free meals to kids 18 and under! All kids 18 and under are welcome!

COVID-19 updates from the county and state level:

Sonoma County remains in "Tier One" of the state's new monitoring chart. This means that the transmission of the virus is widespread and that schools cannot reopen - or apply for waivers. We continue to investigate what safety criteria are necessary to bring students back for instruction.

Does your family need counseling and/or mental health support? Feeling stressed? Isolated? Having anxiety?

Even though SVUSD wasn’t directly impacted by the recent fires, staff members and families may have been. SVUSD has mental health resources available, click here. Sonoma County Office of Education has the following resources available to all students and families. Click here.
