As you enjoy Thanksgiving with your family this year, and perhaps begin your holiday shopping on Black Friday, please consider picking up a gift card for a family in need.
Ryan Petit (Class of 2019) and his family moved to Sacramento, CA last year. Recently, due to the California wildfires, their house was destroyed and everything they were able to salvage is now in one car. Columbia High School’s National Honor Society will be collecting monetary and gift card donations for the Petit family through December 7th, and mailing the gift package to the family the following week, in the hopes of making this difficult time better.
If you would like to send a card / note with your donation, that is perfectly acceptable.
Thank you for considering this request, and happy holidays to you and your family. ** Donation receipts can be obtained from Mr. Sheridan at CHS, or Mrs. Valerie Templeton at Copopa. All donations will be processed through National Honors Society account at the high school.
Picture Retakes will be on the morning of Wednesday, November 28. If you were not here on picture day you will need to have your pictures taken, even if not buying a picture packet. If you purchased a picture packet and were not happy with the pictures, you may have your pictures retaken. You must bring your entire original picture packet to hand to the photographer on retake day. Picture order forms are available in the office or you may order online at mylifetouch.com with the Picture ID:WP068092Y1.
Your child's school fees are now available through the Payforit link at the left. They were mailed out on Thursday, October 4. Past years academic fees are PAST DUE. You may also send your exact payment of cash or check with your child or stop in the office with cash, check or credit card. Please call the office if you would like to set up a payment plan. Thank you!

Snack Safely: At Copopa and Columbia Middle School 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. View our Peanut Free letter HERE.
SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO?
What to do when your child is sick. Keep Your child home if they have had any of these symptoms in the last 24 hours: Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, too sick for regular activity, or fever above 100 F. Students should return to school when fever-free for 24 hours without medication. If antibiotics are used, wait 24 hours before returning to school.

Parents: The Ohio General Assembly passed House Bill 410 to promote school attendance and control truancy. This law takes effect this school year. This new law supersedes the attendance information that is currently in our student agendas and handbooks.
