Columbia High School will be offering an opportunity to participate in virtual summer school. We strongly encourage any student who failed a course this year to make up the class or classes they failed during the summer session. If your child does not attend summer school, they will be rescheduled for the course they failed next year, which may delay their progress towards a timely graduation. We will be reaching out to families of students that would benefit from summer school early the week of June 7th. If you do not hear from us and feel that your child would benefit from summer school please call the main office at 717-684-7500. To enroll in summer school, you and your child must attend a mandatory summer school meeting on June 11th at 10:00 AM. Students will be given a computer, materials, and information on how to proceed in the class at this time. If you are unable to attend in person you can join us on Zoom at the link below. You will still need to arrange a time to come in and receive your materials in person to begin the course. https://columbiabsd.zoom.us/j/82103414741?pwd=K1YxSzdqUExmNGFvRzdHMCs4OFAxdz09 Thank you and have a great summer!

Attention Parents/Caregivers: In an effort to promote safety in our schools, the Columbia Borough School District will be conducting active intruder drills at all three buildings this week. These drills will allow our students and staff to practice safety procedures while also helping our district to become safer through the knowledge gained and areas for improvement we identify each time a drill is done. While the drill will have set simulations at each building, we will not be utilizing any simulated weapons or weapon sounds for the drill. Once the drill concludes, students and staff will return to the building from our rally (safe) points. As part of this drill, we will ask that parents and guardians not come to the building to pick-up students during this time. Prior to our active intruder drill, staff will discuss school safety with students, including the details of the armed intruder drill. If you have any questions, please contact the building.
