Good Morning West Ada! Due to today's inclement weather, school has been canceled and no classes will take place. We ask that families and students stay safe, rest, relax or enjoy one another's company, read a good book and get outside to play and sled if it is safe to do so. Hot chocolate is also a good option! Enjoy a safe snow day! - Superintendent Bub
