Columbia School District's Goal

Our primary focus is compassion for students and families. Our overall academic goal is to ensure that students have achieved mastery through their third quarter courses for the 2019-2020 academic school year. Together as a community, we are experiencing new challenges and our mission is to ensure we maintain positive relationships with our students while engaging in instruction.

“The goal is not to replicate the whole school day at home but to provide students with a sense that they are still connected to the school community.” -Edutopia

Breakfast/Lunch Pick Up Program

In response to the closure of school due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Columbia School District is proud to provide ongoing meal support to our students and their families. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Columbia Elementary School. Any child 18 years old or younger is eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch. Please drive around the pick-up loop. Staff will bring the food to you, you do not have to get out of your vehicle and your children do not need to be with you. If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact the Columbia Food Service Director Lindsay.Kandell@myeagles.org.
