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. 


Sophomores & Juniors

Any Current Sophomores or Juniors interested in Zero Hour next year contact Lani Stava in the front office by Friday March 23.

Earn to Learn

Starting October 1st, The Earn to Learn Program starts at The Shops at Norterra. All you have to do is turn in your receipts from shopping at the Norterra Shops located on the North side of I-17 and Happy Valley! All your receipts can be turned into any O'Connor TEACHER or the FRONT OFFICE. You can also enter your own receipts at shopandlog.com/Norterra or easily put the app on your phone and log all those receipts yourself. The program runs from October 1st-March 31st.

We can earn $500-$2500 for Sandra Day O'Connor through this program by simply turning in receipts from the Shop at Norterra. EASY!



Many students with iPad problems have lost everything because they didn't save files. Don't let this happen to you! Please take time to save important files on your iPad. Save to an Adobe account, Google Drive, or simply email files to yourself. If you need help, check out the LMC website or stop by the library and see Mrs. Salameh.

Students, please do not visit the bookstore during class unless you need textbooks, have Ipad issues, or have club/sport business to take care of.

“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.
