Payment is also accepted in the office with cash (exact amount), check or credit card or mail your payment to the middle school.  If you require a payment plan, contact Mrs. Bowes in the main office.

Snack Safely: At Columbia Middle School and Copopa we have a growing number of students and families dealing with serious peanut and tree nut allergies- the food allergy that claims more lives each year than any other. Columbia Schools makes every effort to reduce exposure and cross contamination for these children. We do not intend to make this K-8 facility a nut free building, but we are dedicated to providing a safe environment for all our children. In order to do so we will closely monitor and manage our practices and what we allow into this facility as it relates specifically to snacks and treats. It is our hope to prevent cross contamination. View the Peanut Free Letter HERE.
