We’d like your feedback – please take the Prestwood Family Survey

Each year, we invite families to complete an online survey that will provide us with information to help us improve your child’s school. We have asked YouthTruth – a nonprofit organization that supports hundreds of schools and districts across the county – to conduct an anonymous survey on our behalf. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.


Please take the survey before it closes at midnight on Friday, January 27th by clicking this link:

ytsurvey.org/svusdfamily23


Please note:

  • The survey needs to be completed in one sitting.

  • We ask that one member of each household fill out the survey.

  • If you have more than one child who attends the same school, you may respond to the survey multiple times - one time per child.

  • If you write any comments, please do not include your name or anything else that might identify you. Your responses are anonymous, and they will be combined with the responses of other parents and guardians before being shared with school and district leadership.


We sincerely thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. Your response is incredibly valuable to us. If you have any questions about the survey, or our plans for how we will use your feedback, please reach out to me.


Thank you!

COVID Antigen Testing - Sign Up Link

The Sonoma Valley Unified School District will offer the K-12 School Antigen Testing Program for district students and staff. Participation in this program requires registration with the COLOR system in order to be tested. Unlike at-home testing, the school antigen testing is performed on test cards on school grounds and results are available in 15 minutes. Select district staff at every campus will be able to administer the school antigen testing and families are required to register their child to be tested. If you have a child at more than one school, you will need to register them through the unique link for each of the schools.

Join the SVUSD Team!

SVUSD Community: Have you ever been interested in the work of a school district employee? Do you have some time on your hands and wouldn't mind making a little extra money while serving our valley's youth?


We have two opportunities for you!

If you have a bachelor's degree and are interested in being a guest teacher, please contact Danielle Contreras at Dcontreras@sonomaschools.org for details! Guest teachers can earn up to $209/day and the work is quite rewarding...and regular!


In addition to guest teachers, we are seeking hardworking, dedicated, and compassionate adults to serve as classified substitutes at this time. We have experienced an increasing need as an outcome of the Pandemic and could use support in clerical work, transportation, campus supervision, student support and so much more. If you are interested in being added to our classified employee sub-pool, please contact Ann Marie Paparelli at Apaparelli@sonomaschools.org to begin the simple process of onboarding. These are paid positions and the compensation varies by the type of work completed.


Thank you!
