Attention COPOPA parents: The district plans on returning to a 5-day per week model of instruction for grades kindergarten through 12th beginning on Monday, April 12!
The current hybrid A/B instructional model will be discontinued for grades K-12 after the school day on March 30, 2021. The Calvert/APEX Online Only learning pathway will continue to be in place for this school year for students that are currently learning in this model. If you are currently in the Online Only model, you will remain there until the end of this school year.
Please click HERE for important information and dates as we make our way to a safe return. Please note that there are days that school will not be in session due to the staff receiving the vaccine and in-service days to prepare for the return. While we know that additional day off are not ideal, we need to prepare the rooms, buildings and the curriculum.
Parent-Teacher Conferences will take place virtually on Wednesday, March 3 and Thursday, March 4. A conference is not mandatory for your student but if you'd like to request a conference, you can sign up with your child's teacher HERE. The conferences will take place just as they did in the fall, via Google Meet or Zoom. Directions for the link can be found HERE. If you'd like a phone conference instead, please contact your child's teacher to arrange this. Also, March 3 and March 4 will be Early Release Days at CLSD with students being dismissed from school at 11:45 am. As with all Early Release Days, students will eat lunch at school. The parent pick-up and bus procedures will remain the same as always.

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. View the 2020-2021 updated Attendance Policy HERE.
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.
