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.

2014/2015 School Calendar
In 2014-2015 we will be keeping our model of early release Fridays for our educators to do their PLC (Professional Learning Community) work. It has been successful and helped to improve our student learning. Each Friday staff gather to review student performance, plan for common lessons and assessments, and provide for the learning of every child so that no one falls behind and those who are advanced get the support they need.

Coos Bay School’s Building Configuration Option Survey #3
The Coos Bay School District has long shared with the community the rapidly aging condition of their facilities as well their ideas for providing 21st Century learning environments for your children and grandchildren.
The Board asks that you take part in this third survey in our continuing work of Phase 1 to create a long-range (3-5 years) facility plan. We need input on two building configuration options that were recommended by the Coos Bay Schools Facilities Outreach Committee and are based on community input from previous surveys. We are looking for further clarification on whether our current configuration has community support, or if not, which of the two options the community would support.
Here is the link to the survey – https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/cbschoolssurvey3 . You will also find the survey posted at www.cbd9.net and the survey will be open until August 22nd. The survey contains seven questions. We appreciate you taking a few moments to answer the questions.
Survey results will be reviewed at the September 8th School Board Meeting. The meeting starts at 6:00 PM and will be held at Milner Crest Education Center located at 1255 Hemlock Ave. (north of Mingus Park off N. 10th St.).
We want you to be involved in this important discussion. We cannot do this without our parents, staff and community. We will not do this without our parents, staff and community. You can make the difference.
If you do not have computer access, please contact Peggy Ahlgrim at 541-267-1310 to have a paper copy mailed to you or to schedule access to a computer.
Madison’s Dress Code
School District policy states a student’s dress and grooming shall not interfere with the learning process and shall not constitute a health or safety hazard. For this reason we have guidelines to help create a positive learning environment. The following examples of unacceptable dress and grooming have been known to disrupt the learning process:
- Sleeveless shirts should have a 2 inch strap. (No spaghetti straps)
- Tummies and chests should be covered.
- Shorts and skirts should be as long as the tips of fingers when arms are held down to the sides.
- Hats and scarves should only be worn on “hat days”, unless there is a special need. Please check with the principal. Hats worn to school must be put away once on school property.
- Leave chains, toys, etc. at home. The rule of thumb is: If it causes a distraction at school, leave it home.
- Elementary students should not wear make-up to school. Hair colored an unnatural color may also cause a disruption to learning.
- Low-rider pants pose a safety problem as well as potential for embarrassment. Please keep them home.
- Students should be able to run in their shoes. High heels (heels of 2 inches or more) and flip flops restrict activities and may cause injury. They will not be allowed at school.
- Please review the print on your student’s clothing and make sure it is “school appropriate”. Clothing, writing on skin, jewelry, etc. that uses obscene language, contains gang related messages, refers to tobacco, alcohol, or other illegal substances, or contains messages of a sexual nature are not allowed.
Students who wear unacceptable clothing or adornment to school will be given a chance to change clothes, remove markings, etc. If that is not possible, or the child refuses, the parent will be contacted. Once the clothing issue has been resolved the child will be free to return to class.
