Superintendent's Message

Dear CSD Patrons,


It’s hard to believe that June is already here. This obviously is not a typical June here in the Columbia School District. Regardless of that, I do not want to lose sight of the amazing accomplishments of fifty-five Class of 2020 graduating Seniors this year. To the parents and family members of our Coyotes, thank you for entrusting us with your children. While the circumstances of the world currently have us all making adjustments to the way we go about our business from one day to the next, we absolutely will remain steadfast and continue to celebrate the accomplishments of all our students. They have earned that and we are extremely proud of all their hard work and dedication during their time in our little corner of the world. Please take a moment to read the information in this month's newsletter for specific graduation event details.


As we continue to celebrate our students from our youngest Coyotes in preschool and kindergarten to our middle school students who are engaging in a virtual and drive through Moving Up Ceremony, work continues on planning for the Fall of 2020. I know the question everyone has on their mind right now is “What will school look like next year?” The easiest and
shortest answer to this right now is that we do not know yet. We continue to consult with Governor Inslee, the state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), as well as both local and state Health Departments. Guidance and expectations are being set as we speak. The current information we have is that districts will be given guidance in June. As soon as we know more, we will be sure to communicate that information out to our community.

Since we are talking about communication, did you know the Columbia School District has a new Facebook page? We are excited to introduce this means of communication to our community! Please search and like “Columbia School District
#400” for the most up-to-date and accurate information available.


As always…...stay safe and healthy! Go Coyotes!



Todd Hilberg, Superintendent
