 SDOHS A+ School of Excellence

We are pleased to announce that Sandra Day O’Connor High School has earned the coveted recognition of an A+ School of Excellence. This is the first time that Sandra Day O’Connor High School has earned this prestigious recognition and something to be very proud of. Our school was evaluated in the areas of student focus and support, school culture, active teaching and learning, curriculum, leadership, community and parent involvement and assessment data.


Fire Alarms

-Unless you can see fire or smell smoke, hold students in your classroom.

-Evacuate only when directed to do so by an administrator or emergency personnel.



-During a DRILL, you will hear: “Teachers and staff, we are now initialing a lockdown drill.”

-During an actual EMERGENCY, you will hear: “This is a code red lockdown, code red lockdown, code red lockdown.”

-If you hear a fire alarm during either a DRILL or an actual EMERGENCY, hold students in your classroom.  Unless you see fire or smell smoke, evacuate only when directed to do so by an administrator or emergency personnel.


 Reminder for all staff and students-There are no drinks other than water allowed in classrooms or the Library at any time.


Students please be aware of the city of Phoenix's parking policies for our surrounding community neighborhoods. We have been notified by Safeway Shopping Center Management, as well as Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office that O’Connor students parking in the business parking spaces can and will be towed at the vehicle owner’s expense.

 Also REMINDER there is NO PARKING allowed on the north curb of Hackamore in the student loading zone. All violators will be ticketed without warning sticker.

Please obey all posted signage. Not obeying posted signage will result in your car being ticketed or towed at your expense.

If your car is towed see someone in security or conduct.

Students riding bicycles and skateboards on campus will need to use the sidewalks in a responsible manner, and not ride on the driveway entering the campus. It is a safety issue with vehicle traffic. Skateboards may not be carried from class to class.



Reminder: Students and Parents-

The front desk will not accept personal items such as IPads, cell phones, money or lunches. There are also no deliveries allowed for students such as balloons, flowers, food or gifts of any kind.


 Students, this is a reminder to check your PowerSchool grade on a regular basis. Be sure that you communicate with your teachers on Monday if you are not passing a class and need to attend Eagle Hour both Tuesday and Thursday.  All students with a D or an F grade need to attend Eagle Hour with their teacher on Tuesday and Thursday in order to improve their learning.

 “Say Something”

There is a collective benefit of reporting or informing adults about any potential unsafe activity so that students get to attend the kind of school they want to attend, a school where the climate is friendly, warm, respectful and supportive. Individually and collectively, we can play an essential role in helping to maintain safety and can make a dramatic difference in preserving such a climate at Sandra Day O'Connor High School. With a hotline in place, information can be reported anonymously by students, parents, or community members without fear or reprisal. If you see something, say something by telling a staff member or dial 623-445-7137.
