Changes this school year:
Conference period will be on Tuesday and Thursday from 8:00 a.m. – 8:55 a.m., first period will start promptly at 9:00 a.m. We have incorporated a 1-minute warning bell during passing periods to help students track time and arrive to class on time. In an effort to improve student supervision and safety, buildings will be locked during lunch. Students may enter the buildings to meet with their teacher when they present a pass from a staff member.
School Breakfast and Lunch:
Lunch is no longer free for all students as the federal COVID free meal program has ended. Students must have their IDs to scan for their breakfast and lunch. Families can fill out the application for free and reduced lunch by following this link: https://mealapp.tusd1.org/
Student pick up and drop off is in the parking lot north of the school. The gate to the parking lot will close at the start of 1st period and reopened at 3:00pm. Students who ride the school bus need to have their IDs as they will scan them to get on the bus.
Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA):
Want to get involved? We have a wonderful PTSA and we are always looking for mew members to help support the Sabino learning community. If you are interested in joining or finding ways you can get involved, please let us know.
I look forward to a successful year with our students and staff,
