Incoming Kindergarteners: The Ohio Department of Health under Ohio Revised Code 3317.67 states that Kindergarten students are required to have updated immunizations prior to entry into Kindergarten. Required immunizations HERE. Your child may have already received these vaccines; however the school may not have proof on file. Please provide an updated copy of your child's immunization record that shows the dates that the vaccines were received. If your child has not received these vaccines, you may obtain them from your healthcare provider or other community providers such as Lorain County Public Health. 

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.  
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. Please make sure to check the "Forms and Documents" tab on the left to view the new attendance policy.
