5 Reasons to complete a Free and Reduced Meal Application!

For the past two years, the Columbia County School District has been delighted to offer breakfast and lunch to all children at no cost. This was made possible thanks to the generous support of the USDA reimbursing schools for meals served to students, regardless of household income. However, this funding will no longer be available next school year.
