COOS BAY — The Coos Bay School District plans to reopen this fall with a hybrid schedule. The new schedule is in an effort to reduce the number of students in the classroom and follow Oregon guidelines for reopening schools.
An online option is being offered for families who would like to be at home full-time and not return to campus beginning in the fall.
The CBSD will implement a hybrid schedule to begin the school year. In this hybrid schedule, students will receive instruction through a combination of in-person and at-home learning.
Students will be physically present at school Monday through Thursday on an alternating AM/PM cohort schedule. The AM cohort of students will attend from 8-11 a.m. and the PM cohort will attend from 12:30-3:30 p.m. The times may be adjusted for transportation purposes. Fridays will be used to support students and families where needed.
In order to accommodate busing, balance class sizes, and keep families together, the school district has placed students in cohorts by geographical location. Families inside the city limits and south of Newmark will be placed in the morning cohort schedule, and families north of Newmark and those outside of Coos Bay city limits placed in the afternoon cohort schedule.
