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.

“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.
