    Students in grades 9-12 if you have not already taken the end of the year SVHS Student Survey please click here to do so. In an effort to gather student views from SVHS, we are asking you to complete this survey. The results of this survey will help us continue to work towards our school vision.

    SVHS Yearbook

    This year’s book is what is known as a Complete Year Yearbook (CYY), which is just like what it sounds: a book that covers the entire year from August to June, right up until the end!

    How do I pick up my yearbook?

    Because this year’s book is a Complete Year Yearbook (CYY), books will be available during Back to School Registration in August for the next academic year 2021-2022.

    Seniors who have ordered a book will pick theirs up via a drive thru pickup in the main parking lot at Sonoma Valley High School. Graduated seniors and/or families can pick up their book during a 1-hour time window. There will be a makeup day for pickups in August.

    Current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who have ordered a book will pick theirs up during Back to School Registration in the Pfeiffer Gym at Sonoma Valley High School. There will be a makeup window for pickups during the first week of school.

    When is the last day to buy the Sonoma Valley High School 2021 yearbook for $100?

    The last day to buy is Wednesday, June 30. After that, the price goes up to $12
