Welcome to Sunset School
|Sunset School is one of two campuses for grades 4-7 in the Coos Bay School District. We are committed to creating a safe and respectful learning environment for each of our Sunset Dolphins.
Our 4th – 6th grade students are in self-contained classrooms, much like a traditional elementary school. 7th graders change classes for math, science, language arts, social studies, music, and physical education with content-area specialists.
We are proud to have a school that has the community feeling of an elementary and the flexibility of a middle school. Please check our Staff Directory to link to your student’s teachers and stay tuned to our website for current information about our school.

February 27, 2015 – Next week is a short week with no school on Thursday or Friday for students and teachers. Our conferences are coming up April 6th and 7th so Thursday is a trade day for the time teachers spend in the evenings during the conferences. Friday, our community and Marshfield High School host the 3A OSAA Basketball Tournament, which brings teams and families to our community from all over the state and allows us to show off our great gym at our high school. The calendar was built with this in mind.
On Monday at our site council meeting we approved our budget proposal for the district’s budget. We are proposing an increase in our supply budget to accommodate the many art projects that we have participated in this year. This is our conservative request based on the current figures from the state legislature. If the state’s budget increases and our district is in a better fiscal position, then we have a second tier budget request of adding .5 FTE to our music position so we would have a full time music teacher at Sunset. None of these proposals are for sure. With opening Bunker Hill and many unknowns, it’s even possible we may need to make some cuts, which is not what we are hoping for. I appreciate the input from parents and the conversations I’ve had with you.
Have a great weekend,
School Attendance Zones
Each home belongs to a school attendance zone based on their address. Sometimes there are circumstances where parents wish their child to attend a school in a different zone.
For 2015-16 school year, Coos Bay School District is asking parents/guardians who wish their student to attend a school in a different zone to please fill out the Intra-District transfer form by April 1st.
Usually the deadline is in August, before school starts. This year, the district needs the information sooner. Having it will allow the district to plan for class sizes, curriculum, etc. before the school year begins.
It’s important to turn in the form by April 1st. We appreciate your help in meeting this deadline.
