Kindergarten Returns Full Time Starting March 1

The Board of Education has approved two changes to the instructional model: 1) Kindergarten students will resume five days a week of in-person learning starting on Monday, March 1. The Full Remote Program is still available to families. 2) Live Virtual Wednesdays will be eliminated for students in grades 1-5 starting March 10 to provide one additional in-person school day every other week. March 10 will be an in-person school day for B Day students and A Day students will have a remote day. The schedule will alternate going forward.

Columbia kitchen renovation

One of the two new serving lines in the Columbia High School cafeteria.

Summer construction projects are being completed day by day as the 2016-17 school year approaches. In addition to the typical work of cleaning rooms, painting hallways and updating computer systems, six schools are undergoing construction to complete the $24 million capital project approved by voters in May 2013.

All asbestos and vermiculite abatement projects are complete, as well as upgrades to classroom lighting, HVAC controls, security cameras and storm drain replacement.

All four cafeteria expansions are expected to be completed this week. The masonry repairs at Donald P. Sutherland Elementary School will continue into the school year, but will not interrupt school operations as the work will be done after school hours.
