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.

Principal’s Pad

Hello Sunset Families!

It’s officially Fall with changing leaves and the end of daylight savings time. Fall conferences have taken place with many families visiting with their child’s teachers to hear about the successes and challenges the children have experienced so far this year in school. We appreciate all of you so much! Whether you have been able to attend conferences by phone or in person, we really do look forward to and are grateful for the opportunity to talk with you about your children.

If you are the parent of a student who rides the school bus, I would like ask for your help in talking with your children about appropriate bus behavior. I have ridden the bus this year with students and it is quite the experience! I realize that the students are going to be chatty and loud because it’s the end of the school day, but the name calling, yelling and the occasional “sign language” has become outrageous! Coming from a school district 5 years ago that did not provide transportation, I appreciate First Student’s services as
I am sure that you do too.

With appreciation,
“Shelly the Shark” McKnight, Principal
