Health and Safety

Our school's Health and Safety Plan for the 2021-22 school year can be viewed here.


The West Ada School District is committed to making this year safe and successful and are working with parents/guardians and students to do so. All West Ada schools will continue to follow their Building Health and Safety Plans when it comes to Covid-19 mitigation. These plans will be updated on school websites by August 25th. Many of the mitigating measures that were in place last year will continue to be in place, such as:

  • mask recommendations.
  • frequent handwashing/hand sanitizing.
  • physical distancing as much as possible.
  • increased sanitation measures.

The Centers for Disease Control has issued a public health order requiring masks be worn by all passengers on public transportation, including school buses. If your student will be riding the bus, please make sure your student has a mask. In case they forget, the bus company will also have masks available.

If you would like to discuss additional mitigation measures for your child, please email me at digrazia.sara@westada.org or call the school at 208-855-4475. Otherwise, we’ll see you all during our Device Distribution/Meet and Greet on August 25th from 3:15 pm-5:30 pm.

West Ada School District and the McMillan staff will do our best to accommodate your needs and keep students and staff healthy and safe. Thank you for helping us keep each other safe. We can’t wait to start learning together.
