The clear bag/no bag policy will apply to all events, indoor or outdoor – athletics, arts, etc. Please review permitted items here.
Due to the roofing project, the main office at Sanderson will be closed on Wednesday, November 22nd. The entrance to the building and the entrance to the student parking lot will be blocked off with construction equipment. We will reopen on Monday, November 27.
Roofing repairs are shifting to the back of the school. For winter sports parking, please park in the front student lot, not the stadium lot.

2023 FOOD DRIVE
It's officially November, which means we are kicking off Sanderson's annual food drive! If you are new to Sanderson, the Food Drive is one of our longest-running traditions. We compete in the Students Against Hunger Food Drive benefiting the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. Last year, we raised $28,816.07 and 1,447 pounds of food to win the competition against other local schools.There are many ways for students, parents, teachers, and community members to participate.
$1= 5 meals
1.2 pounds of food = 1 meal
Checks can be made to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC.
Seniors can purchase a concrete block to leave their mark on the cafeteria hallway for $15 through OSP. Click here to purchase.
