Inclement Weather Information

Coos Bay School District

School closure, delayed start and/or snow route decisions will typically be communicated to parents, media outlets, and posted on the District website, Facebook and Twitter by 5:30 a.m.

We encourage families to make transportation and attendance decisions for their child(ren) based on their own assessment of travel conditions at their location.

When all district schools and facilities are closed

  • All daytime and evening school activities/events on closure days are canceled.

When there is a 2-hour delay in opening school

  • All schools will open two hours later than regularly scheduled.
  • Buses will be on Snow Routes. Routes are posted on the transportation page.

When school is on time and buses are on Snow Routes

  • All schools operate on regular daily schedules.
  • Routes impacted by snow & ice are on a two-hour delay
  • Snow routes are posted on the transportation page. 
  • If the weather forecast calls for declining weather conditions throughout the day, the district will implement snow routes for PM dismissal.

When weather conditions necessitate an early closure of schools
  • We encourage you to refer to the CBSD website and local media for more detailed information.
  • All daytime and evening activities/events are canceled.

Early Release School Days
  • If there is inclement weather on an early release day, the District will decide the schedule on a case-by-case basis and notify parents appropriately.


In the event of Snow/Ice, there will be areas that our buses will not be able to safely travel on. They are listed below by Route #. The stops highlighted in red will be where those students can access transportation on the days we have snow/icy routes only in part of the district. If the weather forecast calls for declining weather conditions throughout the day, the district will implement snow/ice routes for afternoon dismissal at the same pick-up location. If you have questions, please call 541-888-9131.
