Columbia Board of Education Votes on In-Person Return

Columbia Elementary and Pre-K students will return to in-person four days a week and secondary students will have a hybrid option starting January 19th.

The Columbia Public Schools Board of Education voted 5-2 in favor of those decisions during a meeting last night.

The hybrid option will split secondary students into 2 groups, based on last name.

Group one students will return in-person Monday and Tuesday, while group two students will return in-person Thursdays and Fridays.

Wednesdays will continue to be a work day for all students and staff.

Buses will run all four days of in-person instruction.
