With the expiration of the 1997 bond that renovated the high school, the CSD Board of Directors is turning its attention to other capital needs, especially those at the elementary and middle schools. In particular, the school board wants the community's input on how to deal with excess space at our middle school and overcrowding at the elementary school. Although they are considering all funding options, most likely the board will NOT look to do a large bond for building, but rather a smaller capital levy to make capital improvements throughout the district.
Join the Conversation: Beginning in September the District will launch a district-wide community survey allowing everyone to share their thoughts and considerations regarding the facilities. We encourage everyone to register their email through this Thoughtexchange link to participate in this upcoming process!

Weather Delay & Closure Notifications
Watch this page for any school delays or closures during our winter season. We will be posting the details in a scrolling banner.
Parents, staff and students wishing to receive Columbia School District weather closure/delay announcements via email, text message, or push notification can sign up by going to
When you get to that page, start the process by entering your email address and setting a password. Once the account is established, you may add one or two additional email or cell text addresses. Each new entry will require you to launch a test message to that address which will contain a two-letter code which must be entered back onto your account page to ensure that the address(es) is valid, or by clicking the link in the message. Keep in mind that the cell phone companies can get backlogged on weather mornings as they try to keep up with the text messages, so it is recommended that you not rely entirely on text messages. We recommend you download the new, free app for iOS and Android called FlashAlert Messenger. It uses push notification to send messages directly to your phone, bypassing the cell companies' text message channel. Search for FlashAlert Messenger at the iTunes App Store (iOS) or at Google Play (Android). .
