Notice – Crosswalk Closure Sonoma Valley High School currently does not have a crossing guard for the crosswalk on Broadway at the center of campus. Due to safety concerns, parents and students are advised to use the lighted crosswalks at either end of the campus (MacArthur St. and Newcomb St.). For parents dropping off or picking up students on Broadway, please do so near the traffic lights located at MacArthur St. or Newcomb St. so students may cross at those much safer locations.
