Thank you to everyone to attended our Kindness Night. If you were unable to make it, we assembled bags for Mom’s who have babies in the NICU, we colored Valentine cards for residents in an assisted living, we wrote thank you notes to our local fire department, and we tied blankets for foster children. Andrus Elementary loves showing KINDNESS! ❤️


Enjoy your long weekend!

Our amazing Mrs. Rodgers has been having a ton of fun in P.E. doing some educational gymnastics! How lucky are our students?

We were lucky to have Russ from Idaho Power talk with the 4th grade about energy sources.


Boots are most appropriate for the snow, but not for P.E. Please make sure to pack appropriate shoes on the days your child/children have P.E.


Enjoy your snow day Andrus families! ❄️☃️


If you see our wonderful custodians and groundskeepers around, please make sure to give them a thank you for keeping our school accessible. We appreciate all of their hard work! We know it isn't an easy job.


Andrus families, please post your snow day pictures in the comments or tag us! Use

Due to the current level of snow throughout the valley and the predicted continuation of snow, our schools will be experiencing a snow day today, Wednesday, January 10, 2024. School has been canceled and no classes will take place. While the logistics and scheduling may pose a challenge for some, I believe there's a unique magic in the unexpected moments that snow days bring.

Parents, thank you for your understanding. We appreciate your flexibility during these moments. Safety first - please take precautions and enjoy the day responsibly.
Dr. Bub, Superintendent


Welcome back!

What a fun Grinch day in Kindergarten! 💚


Mrs. Rodgers loves when kids are safe in P.E. This is a reminder, that students should be wearing appropriate shoes when coming to the gym. Please pack extra shoes if you are choosing to wear boots during the day. Thanks!

Our amazing Andrus Honor Choir sang at our holiday breakfast on Saturday! Thank you to everyone who attended! We love our Andrus families!


Mrs. Johnson applied for a grant to buy a class set of mathematical board games from Math Pentathlon. She will use the games in class to enhance critical and mathematical thinking and then to allow the students to check them out like library books and play at home with their families.

We love watching what you are doing with your students!

❄️ Winter weather is coming! Here is the district information! ❄️

With the start of winter storms, West Ada School District is again planning and ready for the possibility of school closures. The decision to close schools is a process that is not taken lightly by the district. As storms approach, district staff monitor weather forecasts in preparation to check road conditions during the night and into the early morning before the start of school. If school is canceled because of poor road conditions, information about the closure will be posted on the district website and local media will also be notified.

All efforts will be made to determine school closure due to winter driving conditions by 5 a.m. on the day of the closure in order to have adequate time to alert parents, students, staff and the community of the school closure.

• Television: Channel 2, KBCI; Channel 6, KIVI; Channel 7, KTVB pass
• AM Radio Stations: KBOI, 670; KIDO, 630; KGEM, 1140
• FM Radio Stations: KJOT, 105; K-106, 106; K-LITE, 104; KHEZ, 103.3; KIZN, 93.1; KBSU, 90.3

Parents of Bus Riders
• While we strive for timeliness, busses do inevitably get caught in winter weather traffic. Please prepare your student(s) for the possibility of busses being 10-15 minutes late. Please make sure your student(s) is dressed appropriately. Here are some tips to better prepare.

Cold Weather Bus Stop Tips:
• As always, have students wear bright colors.
• Be cautious of anything dangling off clothing or backpacks as it can get caught on bus doors.
• Have student(s) wear layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing.
• Be sure hats and/or hoods do not obstruct the student(s) ability to hear and see traffic.
• Cover student(s) mouth to protect his/her lungs from extreme cold.
• Have student(s) wear shoes with good traction.
• Use the restroom before getting on the bus!
• Plan ahead for any medical needs your student may have on the bus.

Winter Weather Recess
• When temperatures are below 20 degrees students are kept inside rather than being released for recess.
