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.

Are you in 2nd or 3rd Grade? Do you see yourself as a writer? The Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB) PBS KIDS Writers Contest is officially open to Georgia students in grades K – 3. The deadline to enter the contest is Friday, March 29.
Children are encouraged to submit original, illustrated stories for great prizes and a chance to be featured on the GPB website. Each grade will have first, second, and third place winners. They have provided an activity packet that contains a series of resources to help students break down the process of story writing. It includes a teacher’s guide with printable documents to help students with brainstorming, revising, illustrating, and caption-writing.
