As “back to school” time nears, what’s the plan for students and parents?

back to school

Last night … Columbia Borough School District held a special meeting to “discuss the Re-Opening Plan for the ’20-’21 School Year. Please wear a mask. We look forward to seeing you there! If you cannot attend the Board meeting in person and wish to attend, you can use the Zoom (virtual) link at: https://www.columbiabsd.org/o/cbsd/page/school-board–285″

Curiously, citizens who were unable to attend the meeting in person or watch id on Zoom ought to be able to view the happenings at the meeting online: Virtual School Board Meetings YouTube.For some unexplained reason, there’s a delay and last nigh’s meeting is not posted yet.

Parents and guardians of school age children are filled with mixed emotions about sending their children to school in the midst of a global pandemic.
