New Email Requirements

The IT Department has enabled additional features to our primary district email (@coos-bay.k12.or.us) that will require some additional information from our users when you login to your email online.  You are required to provide an additional piece of information that will be tied to your account.  This is for easy password resets or for unlocking your account if you can’t access your email.  This makes the process of resetting a password fully automated and you can do it on your own.  If you haven’t gone through this procedure yet, we would recommend doing this.

You can provide your phone number to authenticate your account, or another email address (such as your cbk12 account).  You can also provide both of them if you want more then one way to reset your account.  Please contact the IT Department with any questions.

72 Educational Institutions / 1000+ Schools hit by Ransomware in 2019


What is this banner on my email about?

Our email system will add the banner above to any and all email that does NOT come from our school district.  So if you receive an email that claims to be from someone at the district and has an @coos-bay.k12.or.us email but has this banner, it is NOT from them or their @coos-bay.k12.or.us account.

PLEASE USE CAUTION with ALL email and SLOW DOWN.  Especially when they want you to click links, have attachments, or ask you to provide information.
