Welcome Message from Principal Hutchinson
Dear Dragon Community,
Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! I am honored to continue to serve as principal of Sonoma Valley High School and excited to start the new school year. It’s wonderful to have students back on campus! We have enjoyed seeing familiar and new faces in recent days and at events like Back to School Registration!
Next week, our students will return to school after 18 long months of interruption to their educational experience. This fall, our ability to reconnect with each other will be more important than ever. I look forward to re-establishing and strengthening the relationships between our students, staff, families and with our greater SVHS community. I encourage our students to get connected and involved at SVHS - we have incredible opportunities in our academics, athletics, activities and arts. We have an amazing school community with numerous opportunities for student engagement, including sports, clubs, tutoring and more.
While there is much excitement about returning to school and being on campus, we also want to inform our community that we are working to uphold safety protocols regarding COVID. As a school within SVUSD, we must adhere to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidelines for COVID safety. Please refer to the COVID handbook which is linked on the district website. Masks are required in all indoor facilities and strongly recommended outdoors at this time per CDPH.
We look forward to partnering with you to ensure the safety and academic success of all our students. We encourage you to access the multiple communication platforms we use to communicate with families and keep them updated. Follow us on social media and stay informed. Each week, we will share our Digital Bulletin via email and this is a useful resource with updates and information regarding events, activities and opportunities for our students to get involved. We invite parents to participate in family engagement nights. We are grateful for your partnership and THANK YOU for supporting our students! Here’s to a great year at Sonoma High!
