Conference sessions will be in the Tucson High School Technology Building on the corner of 6th St. and Euclid Ave. There is no parking in the THMS parking lots, other than disability parking. We HIGHLY recommend that conference participants park at the 6th Street Garage (1101 E. 6th St.) as it is centrally located between Tucson High and the UA Student Rec Center. All three locations are within walking distance of each other. The walk from THMS to the UA Student Rec Center is approximately 15 minutes. Other great parking options are the “South of Six” surface parking lots that are also centrally located between the two conference destinations. Tyndall Garage is another option on 4th Street, between Euclid Ave and Tyndall Ave. Be sure not to park in the 1 hour parking spots. This is a short 6 minute walk to THMS and ideal if you are not attending the Keynote Luncheon.
For those that need disability access to THMS, there will be a small lot available to those with disabilities or special needs on 6th Street at 2nd Ave. Any car parking at THMS MUST LEAVE CAMPUS immediately after the morning conference sessions. The parking lot gates will be locked at 12:30pm, and will not reopen until Monday morning.
If you are driving to the Keynote Luncheon, there are also some surface street parking lots east of the UA Student Recreation Center and Mansfeld Middle School will be available for TUSD teachers. The 6th Street Garage is still the best location for the majority of participants. Please leave the lot south the the Student Recreation Center available for those with disabilities or need special assistance. Walk on to campus at 7th Street and EUclid. Registration folders can be picked up in the cafeteria beginning at 7:00 AM. Your name tag, session tickets, raffle tickets, lunch ticket, and Certificate of Attendance will be included in your folder. Raffle Prizes will be on display in the cafeteria. Tickets must be deposited in chosen cups by the beginning of the 3rd session. Many prize winners will be announced at the end of the 3rd session. Grand Prize winners will be announced at the luncheon. You must be present to win. Continental Breakfast will be served in the lobby of the Technology Building beginning at 7:30 AM. Vendors will have displays in the lobby.
