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.
