On August 10, the Columbia Board of Education approved the addition of another in-person learning option for the 2020-21 school year: hybrid in-person. In-person learning could be five-day in-person or hybrid in-person (two-days in-person, 3 days online) or fully online depending on the number of COVID cases in our community. The district will make a decision on the format of in-person learning for the start of the school year by August 24. Learn more at www.cpsk12.org/fall2020

Hickman High School advertising students Walter Bratrud, Fletcher Orr, Sam Wills, Conor Byren, Kaylee DeMoss, Jasper Schomaker and Caleb Mitchell were presented with a proclamation from Boone County for their work in collaboration with the Woodruff Advertising Agency on developing a campaign for Boone County's Bicentennial celebration. The campaign "All Trails Lead Home" was developed over 18 months and includes a logo and tagline that will be included on the marketing items sold commemorating the Bicentennial celebration. Proceeds from the sales will go toward assisting a COVID-19 relief fund. The students, teacher Scott Fuenfhausen, and representatives from Woodruff participated in a virtual presentation of the proclamation on June 23.
