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.

Hello Sunset Families!
It’s October! And with it comes Red Ribbon Week and Halloween. We are enjoying dressing up for Red Ribbon Week spirit and while Halloween can also be a great time to dress up at school, we will not be allowing students to come in costume on October 31st. I know that this will disappoint some students, but in talking with the staff we have decided that Monday, October 31 will be a “Crazy Hair/Crazy Hat” day. This will allow many of our students who would really like to be able to wear hats to school do so and those who don’t want to wear a hat, but want to express themselves in a fun and creative way that is usually common on Halloween do so with their hair. I personally love Halloween, but I understand that it isn’t for everyone so I look forward to a spirited day with the students wearing their favorite hats or with some crazy hair styles!
I would like to again invite parents to volunteer here at Sunset. School Site Council, PTA/Boosters and Lego League are all areas where we really need parental involvement. If you have an interest in working with us to improve your child’s experience, please give us a call at 541-888-1242 and ask how you can sign up.
