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

We have received clarification of Arizona revised state statute 15-901. This says that the first 10% of absences, 18, days, are excused if they fall under one of the excused categories. The change to the law states that after the 10%, 18 days, any absence for any reason after that is considered unexcused. For every 5 days after the 18th absence, paperwork will be filed turning your child's name into probation in accordance with truancy policies.
When your child is absent you must call in with 48 hours for it to be excused. You will no longer be able to in a week after your child has been gone to excuse the absence. If it is not called in within 48 hours of the absence, we will not go back and change an unexcused to an excused. All of this is specifically stated in the state law.


i-Ready will be available to students over the summer. Parents, please encourage students to spend quality time on reading and math iReady curriculum program. Recommended time would be 45 minutes for reading and 45 minutes for math a week. Ask your student or teacher how to access.
