Recent emergency closures and snow days have disrupted schedules. To keep you informed, we have outlined the updates in the academic calendar.
Adjustments to the Academic Calendar
Due to these unforeseen circumstances, West Ada School District (WASD) has altered the academic calendar to ensure our students continue to receive the best possible learning environment. Wednesday, January 24, is now a regular school day for all students, from pre-K to 12th grade, rather than a professional learning day without students.
