Oregon State, District, and School Report Cards
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.

Principal’s Pad – We got right back in the ‘full week of school’ swing of things this week and it was a busy one. A couple of the highlights were our guest jazz band and our Family Literacy Night.
The High Street Band from Idaho is in Coos Bay as a part of the Clambake Jazz Festival going on around town this weekend. Our neighbors at Madison came over and with our other guests we had close to 1000 people in our gym. Students (and staff) from both schools were outstanding and appeared to have a fantastic time. I brought my electric mandolin and sat in with High Street again for the fourth year in a row. It was great to watch all of our K-7 kids smiling, dancing and singing along with the music. Thanks to all the people and organizations who support the festival and the Jazz in our Schools!
Last night we had our annual Title One Family Literacy Night. So many of you came to participate in the activities, to visit with friends and neighbors and to enjoy a pasta dinner last night and it looked to me like everyone was having fun. Family Literacy Night is an awesome evening every year. I really enjoy the opportunity to have so many conversations with so many of you. Last night is a reminder of why it is so great to be a part of our Sunset Family!
Have a great weekend,
