Free Food Boxes

Every Wednesday, Yavapai County Schools is partnering with Manzanita Outreach and the Salvation Army to share food with the public free of charge. Food boxes will be available from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Seligman Schools in the bus loading area. You will need to give your name and address when you pick up your box. Those receiving food should stay in your vehicle throughout the "drive-thru" process and please make sure you have ample space in your truck for the loading of food boxes.

This will continue for as long as the need exists during the COVID-19 pandemic measures. Food box distribution is on a first come first serve basis.

Open Board Member Seats

Yavapai County School Superintendent Tim Carter invites voters of the Seligman Unified School District to run for one of the four seats on the governing board up for election in the November 2020 election cycle. Of the four incumbents, Charles Cruise, Ben Emery, Patricia Foy, and Cheryl James, only one (Patricia Foy) has pulled a packet. 

The terms are for four years and begin on January 1, 2021, and end on December 31, 2024. These are unpaid, community service positions.

To be eligible to run for a seat, a person must be:

  • A citizen of the United States
  • A registered voter within the district
  • 18 years of age
  • A resident of the Seligman School District for at least one year preceding the election
  • Possess their civil rights
  • The candidate and their spouse may not work for the district or be a third party provider to the district

Packets were first available on March 16, 2020, and the first day to file petitions is on June 8, 2020, and the last day is on July 6, 2020. There is a requirement of six valid signatures. To be safe from a challenge, we recommend you get double that amount.

To begin the process, please call Jenn Nelson, YCESA election coordinator in Prescott, at (928) 771-3326 to arrange a time to meet and pick up a packet. A person must file a statement of intent before circulating petitions.

Bus Schedule for School Closure Continued Education and Meal Distribution

The bus schedule for school closure continued education and meal distribution is available below. Please note that lesson packets will be available for pick up and returns at bus stops on Mondays, and meals will be available for pick up at bus stops on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Caring for Children During School Closure

The CDC has tips for keeping children healthy while school is out.  Based on available evidence, children do not appear to be at higher risk for COVID-19 than adults. While some children and infants have been sick with COVID-19, adults make up most of the known cases to date. For information on what you can do to keep your child healthy, please read the Caring for Children CDC article.

Change in Office Hours

Due to COVID-19, our district office will be open Monday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
