Evacuation safety drillAll Columbia students will participate in an evacuation safety drill on Thursday at 10:00 a.m. Students will board school buses and be transported to the Howard L. Goff Middle School parking lot where attendance will be taken. They will then be brought back to Columbia and will return to class.

The entire drill should take about an hour.

Students may not be picked up between 9:35 and 11:30 a.m. as Columbia High School’s campus will be closed during this drill. Please make plans accordingly.

Columbia practices this very important drill annually.
