Dear Parents,


This past winter has been brutal for all of us. As you know, we missed a total of eleven days due to cold, snow and water issues. CLSD understands the inconvenience that these days might have caused our families. However, the safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. 


On March 26th Governor Kasich signed legislation that set parameters for CLSD to make up calamity days. By law, we are required to make up a total of four days. The Columbia Board of Education approved a resolution and The Ohio Department of Education approved our plan for makeup days as follows:

 

  1. Two days will be added to the end of the school year. Therefore, there will be classes for all students K-11 on Thursday, June 5th and Friday, June 6th


  2. Two days will be made up using Blizzard Bags. Blizzard Bags are take home assignments and will be handed out to students on April 28th and May 12th. Students will have ten days to complete each assignment. This means the April 28th assignment is due on May 9th and the May 12th assignment is due on May 23rd. Each assignment will be graded and recorded. If your student needs help or direction they may ask the teacher during the regular school day. The teachers will provide directions for each assignment. Failure to complete one or both assignments will result in a grade of zero and the student will be listed as an unexcused absence for that makeup day.

Seniors will not have to make up any additional days. However, they will need to complete the two Blizzard Bag assignments. Commencement will be held on Friday, May 30th at 7:00 pm in the CHS gymnasium. We hope to see you there!

  

If you have any additional questions please feel free to call the building principal at the school in which your son(s)/daughter(s) attend.

Applications for open enrollment are mailed after March 1.   Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.  

 

If your child is not eligible for enrollment in your home district, we cannot accept your application. EXAMPLE:  if your home district’s age limitation for Kindergarten is 5 years old by August 1, and your child’s birth date is August 15, we cannot accept your child.
 
Please complete the enrollment and Kindergarten screening process in your home district. There is no need for open enrollment families to attend the February 26 Kindergarten Information Night. If your child is accepted in the Columbia Schools, you will receive enrollment information with your acceptance letter. 
 
Applications will be acted upon by July 1.
 
Please click HERE to read all open enrollment guidelines.
 
If you have any further questions or would like an open enrollment application, please contact Pat Cieslak, Secretary to the Superintendent, at 440/236-5008.
