The Central Point School District makes student safety a priority. When inclement weather strikes, our First Student manager, Susan Williamson, and I are in nearly constant communication. She is out on the roads by 5:00 am to determine bus safety. I am also in communication with other valley superintendents to share information about road conditions and weather forecasts. Ultimately, we determine whether or not it is safe to transport students to and from our schools.
In some cases, schools remain open, but buses operate on “snow routes” ( click here to see snow routes). In other cases, conditions seem great in town, but poor enough in rural areas to warrant a delay or closure.
In the event that inclement weather strikes and schools are delayed or closed, this will be the communication protocol:
First Student has already prepared for winter driving conditions by training all drivers in safe driving procedures for rain, snow, fog and icy road conditions. They will also all attend a refresher course in chaining procedures by 12/5 and all higher elevation routes have buses with automatic drop chains.
Should you have questions or concerns about our inclement weather procedures, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 541.494.6201 (office) 541.840.5644 (cell).
The October 21st school board meeting will be held at Patrick Elementary School at 5:30 pm. The board is meeting an hour earlier than usual because the Crater Volleyball team is hosting the conference championship match at 6:45 pm on Tuesday. This is a big game for the Comets as the last Crater volleyball conference championship was in 1986. Go Comets!
The Central Point School District is presently in the process of accepting applications for the D6 Budget Committee. We have two positions open this year – one will represent the Hanby Middle School attendance area and the other will represent the Scenic Middle School attendance area.
More information is available on this news release link or you can contact Darlene Rambo at 541-494-6202.

District 6 staff members have been busy preparing classrooms and planning instruction—we’re excited about the return of your children to our schools today.
Whether your student is in elementary school, middle school or high school, you can expect a skilled and passionate staff committed to your child’s learning and growth. Each of our schools serves a distinct school community and provides the resources, programs and instruction tailored to that school community. Our schools also work with strong parent teacher organizations, site councils and community partnerships so that your child is both challenged and supported.
Our community partnerships remain essential to our strong school community. The Crater Foundation (along with Central Point Rotary) ensures that every Kindergarten student in the district receives all of his or her supplies. Junior Comets provides a wide range of elementary and middle school sports programs When that child graduates from high school, the Crater Foundation promises scholarship money, just for applying. La Clinica is our partner in student health—School Based Health Centers are located on the Crater Campus, at Jewett and at Scenic (a mobile unit for Hanby and Patrick will be also be available beginning this month). Students from all of our schools are welcome to visit the health centers for care. Southern Oregon Head Start shares our commitment to learning and growth and getting kids started in pre-school is essential. Southern Oregon Head Start will not only serve students at the Central Point Elementary site, but a new site at Sams Valley Elementary will open this month. Finally, our district partnership with Rogue Community College and Southern Oregon University provides high school students the opportunity to earn college credits while still in high school.
The District 6 community has much to be proud of. In the last school year, our schools’ test scores improved, while the state demonstrated a downward trend. Our schools typically outperform the state—for example, we graduate more of our students and have fewer dropouts. In the past seven years we have also significantly increased the number of our students who go on to post secondary education. Further, some of our schools were singled out for major awards—Sams Valley Elementary was designated a model school, Crater Renaissance Academy was honored as a top high school by US News and World Report and Jewett Elementary was awarded a Bilingual Education Grant to design the Two Way Spanish/English Immersion program initiated this year.
District 6 schools and staff are committed to unfolding the potential of every child—we value your partnership in that mission.
The Central Point School District Board of Directors will meet on Tuesday, September 16th at 6:30 pm in the District Office Boardroom.
In preparation for a brand new network, District 6 will be closed on Friday, June 27th. All systems (including phone, internet and Synergy) will be down from 10:00 am on Friday, June 27th until Monday morning, June 30th. The district office and all district schools will be closed on Friday, June 27th. Please note that summer lunch will be available on Friday, June 27th at CPE.
District staff will be able to access their email (because our email system is hosted by Google) on phones, other devices, or from home (or, anywhere that they have internet access). In the event that you need to contact someone at the district level, please email Superintendent Samantha Steele, email@example.com, or contact her via cell phone 541.840.5644.
