The cafeteria now has computerized lunch account check

in system.  Please remember Columbian families are able to utilize the online payment system, known as

SchoolCafe, to view their student's purchase history and receive low balance alerts!  The system has been

available to prepay online and setup automatic payments, but now we have added additional features.  If you have any

questions about the system, please contact the Nutrition Services Office, 531-299-0230.  https://www.schoolcafe.com



In effort to curb bullying at Columbian Elementary there is a form that you may use when you see a bullying act.

School community members should report all incidents of bullying (verbally, in writing

and/or electronically), whether they personally observe incidents or are made aware of

them by some other means. Reporting by school community members should occur even if

the victim does not file a formal complaint, and even if the victim does not express any overt disapproval of the bullying behavior.

Click Here for the Form.

Columbian On-Line Meal Payments    

Meal Application and Payment:

*Our Online Payment is known as SchoolCafe, we hope our families utilize this option to speed up the serving lines by eliminating cash or check payments when students purchase a meal.  Additionally, the  payments are secure and can be set-up to automatically add funds to the student's account each month.  The link is:  https://www.schoolcafe.com/  


*The Online Meal Application is the quickest and easiest way for parents/guardians to apply for meal benefits!  Located at https://schoolmealapp.com the parent/guardian can register, sign-in, and complete a family application.  The application is reviewed and, depending on the information included, students can start receiving meal benefits the next day!
