We are writing to inform you about an activity occurring on the Cochise College campus today that may impact our community. Cochise College Law Enforcement classes are conducting "ambush drills" on their campus today. As a result, students and staff at Buena High School, due to our proximity, may hear simulated gunfire from these drills. Please be assured that there is no threat to Buena High School, our students, or staff. These drills are part of training exercises conducted by Cochise College for their law enforcement program, and they are being conducted with the utmost safety precautions in place. We understand that hearing gunfire, even simulated, can be concerning. However, we want to reassure you that these drills are being conducted in a controlled environment and are essential for preparing future law enforcement professionals. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. The safety and well-being of our students and staff are our top priorities, and we will continue to keep you informed of any developments. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

On Friday, the Sierra Vista Symphony Orchestra invited all Cochise County 5th graders to a FREE concert at Buena High School! SVUSD was so grateful that five of our elementary schools were able to participate in this amazing yearly event. 🎻🎺 From classical masterpieces to modern hits like The Mandalorian and Harry Potter themes, the symphony had the students inspired by the music around them! They danced in their heads to a lively can-can and swung their arms to the ending song. ✨Special shoutout to Buena High School Senior Garrett Parnaby for his mesmerizing trombone solo! But the fun didn't stop there! Each instrument in the orchestra was introduced to the students, and they got to hear the unique sound of each one up close. This was a fantastic opportunity for them to learn about different instruments and maybe even discover a new passion for music! A huge thank you to the Sierra Vista Symphony Orchestra and their sponsors for making this amazing event possible! It was truly a magical experience for our students, and we're so grateful for the opportunity to introduce them to the world of classical music. ✨ #SVUSD #SierraVistaSymphony #MusicEducation #MagicalMoments

Dear Parents of Sierra Vista Unified School District, We understand that the recent transportation delays have caused concerns and frustrations for both you and your students. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and would like to provide you with some clarity on the situation. Unfortunately, Student Transportation of America (STA), our transportation partner, faced unexpected challenges when four employees abruptly left their positions. While it was known that these employees were planning to leave at the end of the school year, the timeline shifted unexpectedly, leading to the current staffing shortage. We want to assure you that the leadership at STA was proactive in addressing this issue. New drivers were already enrolled in the training program to cover the anticipated departures at the end of the year. Additionally, STA has arranged for new drivers to be transferred from other locations, and they will soon join the Sierra Vista team. These new drivers, along with those undergoing training, are eagerly awaiting their state certification. We expect some of the new drivers to be available to begin their routes at the beginning of February with the remainder of drivers being available through the end of March. STA will also continue to hire and train additional drivers to ensure a more robust and reliable transportation service in the future. Both Sierra Vista Unified School District and STA are working diligently to minimize the impact of these delays on your students' transportation to and from school. We understand the importance of reliable transportation for your children's education and well-being. We are genuinely excited for the new drivers to join our team and contribute to easing some of the delay issues. We believe that their addition will enhance the overall efficiency and reliability of our transportation services. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our transportation department. We value your understanding and patience as we work through these challenges and look forward to providing a more seamless transportation experience for your students in the near future. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Sincerely, SVUSD Administration
