Welcome to Columbia School District!
Our Mission Statement: In partnership with our community, our mission is to provide relevant and challenging work that engages students so they persist when experiencing difficulties and have a sense of accomplishment when they succeed.
E-Rate Request for Proposals: Columbia School District #400 is taking sealed bids for E-rate supported hosted VOIP solutions and internal wired/wireless infrastructure upgrades. Please visit www.csd400.org/csd/csd_rfp.php for Category 1 and 2 RFP documentation.
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. Bear in my mind that the cell phone companies 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).
