School Closure or Delayed Start Notification Process
Coos Bay Public Schools will utilize the Synrevoice automated phone system to notify families of school closures, delayed starts and other emergencies.
In the event of a closure or delayed start, the automated system will be activated, usually by 6:00 am, and all families will be called and given the message. Included in the message will be a phone number that you can call to get a recorded update. Please be sure your contact information is correct at the schools.
The information will also be sent out to via Flash Alert to the media and posted on the district‘s website at www.cbd9.net. If you would like to receive Flash Alert notification, go to www.flashalert.net/news.html?id=1374. At that site, you can sign up to receive both text messages and e-mails for emergency alerts and news releases.

Dear Madison Families,
This week our students were treated to two excellent assemblies with a visit from the Oregon Coast Aquarium.
Our K-1 students watched the “Shark Shenanigans”. Our students learned about sharks, saw an inflatable great white shark and were able to touch and experience shark skin, teeth and jaws. They learned how sharks use their fins, senses and other amazing adaptations for survival in the vast open ocean.
The Gr. 2-3 students learned facts about sharks during their presentation on “Sense-ational Sharks”. With the opportunity to explore shark bio-facts including egg cases, they learned about facts and fiction related to sharks.
Our Madison Booster Club is responsible for providing these extended science learning opportunities for our students. Thank you.
Have a great weekend,

Thank you for your participation.

Vaccine Exemptions: Information for Parents and Families
Vaccines are needed for students in schools, childcares, preschools, and Head Start programs in Oregon. By far, most parents vaccinate their children. But some parents claim exemptions to vaccines.
The next School Exclusion Day is February 19, 2014. Parents who need to claim an exemption by this date should sign the religious exemption section of the Certificate of Immunization Status before turning this form in to the school.
Beginning on March 1, 2014, parents must receive education about the benefits and risks of vaccines before signing an exemption. Parents can receive education in one of two ways:
1. Talk to a healthcare provider.
2. View an online vaccine education module. The link to the module will be posted on Oregon Immunization Program’s website on March 1, 2014.
Please visit Oregon Immunization Program’s website for more information about school vaccine requirements at: http://1.usa.gov/OregonSchool, or talk to your healthcare provider.
