School bell rings early in West Ada District

It's just the first part of August, and already the school bell is ringing. Four year-around schools opened Monday in West Ada School District: Chaparral, Pioneer School for the Arts, Seven Oaks and Spalding STEM Academy.

Over the next several weeks, more than 60,000 students will be returning to Treasure Valley schools. Of course, that means being extra careful watching for kids headed to and from school as you drive down the street and paying attention to school speed zones.

Here are opening dates for several Treasure Valley school districts:

Nampa: Aug. 18

Caldwell: Aug. 19

Boise, Kuna, Vallivue and West Ada: Aug. 24
