CAMPUS VISITOR PROCEDURES
At Buford Academy we care about the safety of our students. Because we want to ensure that our students are protected, there is a visitor safety procedure in place. All visitors will be required to present their State issued picture ID upon entering the building. This is required for ALL VISITORS, so please have your identification ready EACH time you visit. After the school day begins, our doors will be locked and visitors must press the bell button to gain entry to the school.

100th Day of School Celebration Coming Soon!
Although it is hard to believe...next Wednesday, January 16th will be our 100th day of school. Students are invited to help us celebrate the occasion by dressing like they are 100 years old. Our teachers and staff really get into the spirit of things every year. Students dressing old will not have to be in dress code. So get your old on.....Wednesday, January 16th!
