Columbus City Schools
Update effective May 1, 2020: In April, Governor DeWine announced the statewide closure of all Pre-K through 12 school buildings for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year. Columbus City Schools is supportive of the Governor’s decision, as we must put the health and safety of our students, staff, and community first. This update not only impacted the school programs but our partners and community rentals which mean so much to our community. We will continue to closely monitor events surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Ohio Department of Health, and our government officials.

Revised Aug 5: Columbus City Schools will cancel and restrict the use of its school buildings and grounds for facility use by outside organizations and entities through October 27, 2020.
