No, I’m afraid this cannot be done.

your only option is to launch solidworks silently and get the data. I have done this before but there are certain things that do not work. you have to create a new instance of solidworks. then set the active doc to the file you need to reference. i believe the only api you can use is sldworks. don't quote me on this though.
Jacob is correct. But why not think laterally and use custom properties instead of notes?
The notes in your drawing can be linked to custom properties, and custom properties can be accessed outside of SolidWorks (using the SWDocumentMgr API)
Hello, Okay this sounds like a good solution.
In solidworks how would I create a customer property that holds the notes information? Which variable would I use?
