Cell Phone and Gizmo Use

Families,

We are have issues with Gizmos and cell phones. We are asking students to please turn off these devices and put them in backpacks until the end of the school day. We know that these devices are important when students are traveling to and from school.


If your child is feeling ill please ask them to let the classroom teacher know. Their teacher will then send them to the nurses office to be evaluated. Our nurse will then contact you regarding your child. We are asking that students not contact you directly via Gizmo or cell phone. Thank you so much for your support regarding this manner.


Sincerely,


Jacque Wilson

Principal

Full Day Kindergarten

FULL-DAY KINDERGARTEN The dream of full day kindergarten for students in West Ada is now a reality! The opportunity to extend learning for our kindergarten and elementary teams is a tremendous celebration and I know we all look forward to the evidence of success this will create.



  • Full-day Kindergarten not only boosts students' academic achievement, it also strengthens their social and emotional skills.
  • Full-day Kindergarten offers twice as much instructional time to students increasing the opportunity for student-centered, creative activities and "guided play".
  • Full-day Kindergarten provides more time for enrichment such as activity centers, academic group time and projects. Full-day Kindergarten allows for an increased opportunity to address student needs (academic, social, emotional, developmental, etc.); focusing on the development of the whole child not just academic readiness.
  • Full-day Kindergarten reduces the probability that children will be retained in the early elementary grades.
  • Full-day Kindergarten provides all students effective classroom instruction throughout the school day at NO COST, allowing for individual student needs to be met while preparing students to be "full-day ready" entering first grade.



West Ada schools are hosting in-person registration events throughout the month of April. Please refer to your home school's registration dates and times for an opportunity to meet teachers, explore the school and for students to participate in a required Kindergarten academic screener. Idaho state law requires students entering Kindergarten to be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2022

Transportation at the End of the Day

Dear Families,

If you are changing plans as to how your child is going home, please notify the office before 2:30. It is really busy at the end of the day and we want to make sure we are able to notify students of the changes. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

In District Transfers

If your child is attending Seven Oaks on an In-District transfer, you will need to reapply for the 2022-2023 school year. Forms may be turned in from March 1-June 1. Acceptance is based on space availability at each grade level. To obtain the form please go to the West Ada School District website. You will find the form in the Parent and Students section under School Registrations. One form is needed for each child attending. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Is your child going to be absent?

If your child is going to be absent please call the office. (208-350-4095).

Thank you so much for your cooperation.
