As an update on the most current developments and guidance regarding the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic:

UPDATE: Horizon Science Academy Columbus High will continue education online for the first semester of 2020-2021 school year. Please see our Remote Learning Plan!

In the meantime, our custodial staff will regularly disinfect doorknobs, drinking fountains, and other high-frequency “touchpoints,” and of course restrooms and cafeterias.  

As always, and especially during flu season, anyone who becomes sick with a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing needs to stay home. Contact your medical provider with questions.

We know decisions like these impact families, and we understand the sacrifice this will entail, but it is the right thing to do.  Our top priority is the health and safety of students and staff, and we will continue to follow the guidance of local, state, and federal health officials in this evolving situation.


Watch for Updates

We will post necessary updates on all communications channels, including the event websites and via email.

Always an innovator, we are looking into alternative possibilities to learning.  Please look for updates soon.


Helpful Resources
