Welcome to Adobe GoLive 6


ALL parents/guardians of Safford Unified School District students there are changes to the Transportation Policies that will be put into effect at the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year.

In order for your child to ride a bus to/from school, you must come into the Transportation Office with your child, view a video, and sign all necessary paperwork.

The Transportation Office
1185 S. 14th Ave.

This new Transportation Policy is in place to help educate everyone on the importance of safety on school buses. At Safford Unified Schools, we are striving to create a safe, healthy environment for everyone.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the Transportation Office at (928) 348-7091 or (928) 348-7080.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Phillip Nelson
Director of Transportation


ABSENCES: When a student is absent from school the parent/guardian must contact the school in advance or at the time of any absence. Absences that are not reported by a parent/guardian within 24 HOURS will be counted as unexcused. Once you have 18 absences you may be excluded from end of year activities.
TARDIES: 18 excused or unexcused tardies will result in loss of participation in end of year activities. Tardies will only be considered excused for appointments or emergencies, when the parent/guardian comes in with the student.

Arizona tax law allows married couples filing jointly to take up to $400 in tax credit or $200 for singles if they donate to extracurricular activities. This tax credit is available to all taxpayers, even if they donít have children in school. Contributions are donated directly to the school, not to the state or even to the district. Though contributions to public schools have always been tax deductible, a tax credit is subtracted from the amount of taxes you owe. A tax credit is a full refund of your money. You can choose what school/teacher or †an extracurricular program you would like it to go to. Teachers use this money to pay for class field trips.
