To CBSD Community and Caregivers,

The Pennsylvania Department of Health (PDoH) and Department of Education (PDE) monitor COVID19 cases in Lancaster County, and they have just labeled the county with a Substantial designation.

 At this time, PDE is NOT mandating a shift to remote learning for Lancaster County schools. It is also important to note that PDE is only making recommendations to school districts while still allowing for local board decision-making.

 Currently, the Columbia Borough School District is using a Blended Learning Model (A/B schedule). This new designation is NOT changing our current model. A small public health team in the district will continue to monitor and make decisions according to the most recent data.

 Thank you for your patience and fortitude during this pandemic.
