Students Age 16+ Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccine

With students age 16 & older now eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination, we encourage eligible students who are able to get the free COVID-19 vaccine to do so as soon as possible. By doing so, you’ll not only protect yourself and others, but you’ll also help ensure we can keep students in school. 
Boise Schools to Hold Limited, In-Person Graduation Ceremonies
Boise School District is excited to announce that plans for limited, in-person graduation ceremonies for Boise High School, Borah High School, Capital High School and Timberline High School have been approved by ExtraMile Arena, Central District Health and the City of Boise.
Valley Visions 2021
Valley Visions is the Boise School District's art and literacy showcase magazine for high school students. Works in the magazine are created and chosen by students to highlight the talent of young people and give them a platform to display this work to the community, as well as the experience of producing a quality publication.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, an in-person event to celebrate the work of the students included in the publication is not possible this year. However, the District produced the following video that captures the highlights of the 2021 Valley Visions publication, including student interviews.
