Update for Columbia Graduation and Goff Elevation Celebration

Columbia High School was notified by LifeTouch that the Columbian Yearbooks continue to be delayed. We know you want your yearbooks and we would love nothing more than to distribute them to you. Unfortunately, LifeTouch is unable to give us a tentative date of when they will ship. When they do come in, the school will notify everyone with pickup dates and times, as we have to follow social distancing protocols.

Please read the message from our yearbook representative below:

Dear Columbia Students & Families,

Our apologies for the continued delay with the 2020 yearbooks. Our yearbook production facilities were impacted with Covid19, and were shut down for some time. Since we have reopened, we have been limited by state mandates around social distancing and cleaning requirements, and other restrictions around people working in manufacturing facilities. We are printing yearbooks, but are simply faced with a backlog currently. Mrs. Missenis and the yearbook staff met their deadlines, and in a normal year, you would have the yearbook. Our apologies for the delay. We are doing what we can to get yearbooks to schools around the country, and to Columbia.
