Is there a MAP? Jr. High is a lot bigger than Elementary!! Look at the room number if it starts with a two(2) then it is upstairs, if it starts with a one(1) it is downstairs. You will get the hang of it super quick!! Sand Ridge has four pod hallways, we have two pods downstairs and two upstairs along with some hallways. We also have one portable outside which is for health classes, you can go down the shop hallway to get to the portable. If you get lost you can always ask the super nice office ladies or any of our awesome teachers. We also have a map, click here.
Main Office, Attendance Office, Counseling Office....What is the difference?
Main Office is the first office you come to thru the front doors. This is where the principal, assistant principal, school officer and head secretary offices are. You can make payments on your students lunch account, registration, sports and etc. Need a new ID Card or have any questions we can help you.
Attendance Office is the window just past to the main office. If you need to drop something off or see your student, check in or check out your student this is the place to go. Anyone that is not a staff member or student MUST check in and get a visitor badge here to enter the school. If the attendance secretary is not avaliable the Main Office can always help. There is also a student phone for use at the attendance window.
Counseling Office is across the commons area. This is where you go if you are a new student and need to register to attend school at Sand Ridge. The counselors for the school have their offices here a long with the nurse, student advocate and copy center. There is also a student phone located in this office if you need to call home.
Where is Lunch? What Lunch do I have? Check the bell schedule to see what lunch you have. Tables are put up in the commons area and this is where you eat lunch. If you bring your lunch, you eat here, if you get school lunch you eat here. We don't want food taken outside or in the hallways of the school. Make sure you clean up after yourself, it is your responsibility to throw your lunch tray and trash away. If something is spilled please find the lunch aide or custodian to help get the mess cleaned up.
What are the bell schedules? You can look at the tiny print on the back of your student ID card or click here.
What is Advisory? Advisory class is after 7rd period on Tuesday and Thursday. In Advisory you get to do homework and get caught up on work you missed.
Why do I have a counselor? Your counselor can help you if you are having any sort of problem that you need to talk to or if you have question about a class with a teacher or another student. You can talk to them and work through what is going on. Our awesome counselors are always there to listen to anything you need. They also help keep you on track in school to make sure you are taking the classes you need for graduation. Get to know your counselor, they are here for you and want to know you.
Do I really need to go to Back to School Night? This is the time that you can walk around the school, talk to your teachers, and find out what optional supplies you may need for each class. You can get to know the school better. Sometimes the PTSA has shirts or items for sale, so its a good time to get all ready for school, so you aren't nervous on the first day.
What is done at Parent Teacher Conference (PTC)? This is a great time for parents to meet face to face or on a virtual google meet with teachers to find out how their student is doing in classes and talk about questions or conserns they may have. We hold two PTC during the school year the first one is the end of September and the second mid February cee the calendar for more details. You are also ALWAYS welcome to email a teacher at any time during the school year and set up an appointment if you have conserns with your students education needs.

If you need copy of your schedule you can go to the counseling or main office and the secretary there can get one printed for you.
