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.
Welcome to Madison Elementary
Madison Elementary is the school community for approximately 400 Kindergarten through 3rd grade students this year. Madison’s attendance area reaches from just north of Charleston to Empire along Cape Arago highway. The school is minutes from the Pacific Ocean, offering many opportunities for visits to the tide pools, beaches, and the South Slough Estuarine Reserve.
Madison’s staff is made up of dedicated professionals who strive for excellence in student performance while also making the learning process as engaging as possible.
We encourage parent involvement through our Booster Club and volunteering through the SMART program or helping in the classrooms or library.
Dear Madison Families,
I hope you have made plans to join the group of students and families traveling to Shore Acres to see the lights the evening of Dec. 13. We are very pleased with the response we had from all the families reserving a seat to continue this Madison tradition again this year. A special thanks to the Madison Booster Club for providing the cost of the buses to transport us to the park.
This will be the 14th year for our school to take the special tour through the garden as it is decorated for the holiday season. It promises to be a magical event as the garden is festooned with greenery and lights making for a special holiday memory.
Our winter program will be held on two evenings, Dec. 17th and 18th at 6:30 p.m. to accommodate our large turnout. Students with last names, A-K will be on Dec. 17th and students with last names L-Z will perform on Dec. 18th. We look forward to you joining us for a special evening of songs.

What’s Best for Students
Coos Bay Schools Facilities Focus Group Rescheduling Saturday’s Workshop
In an effort to engage the highest number of parents, community and staff members, the Coos Bay Schools Facilities Focus Group has rescheduled this Saturday’s workshop “What’s Best for Students” to Saturday, January 25th at 9:00 AM at Marshfield High School in the Library. For more information, go to www.cbd9.net or contact Ariann Lyons @ firstname.lastname@example.org
While safety, roofs and heating are among the critical components of our schools, “What’s Best for Students” will largely address Coos Bay Public Schools’ grade configurations. Community members and District staff will have the opportunity to share their opinions on how Coos Bay grade configurations can support student achievement.
We will look at other models across the state and nation and work in small-group settings. Our goal for the day is to develop tangible solutions the District can further explore and then apply to our school buildings. Please let us know if you would like to be involved so we can include everyone in this critical discussion about the future of our children and community.
For more information, contact Ariann Lyons @ email@example.com

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.
