UPDATED DATE: “What’s Best for Students”
On Saturday, January 25, 2014, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. the Coos Bay School Facilities Committee, in conjunction with the District, will hold a workshop focused on grade configurations.
While safety, roofs and heating are among the critical components of our schools, “What’s Best for Students” will largely address Coos Bay Public Schools’ grade configurations. Community members and District staff will have the opportunity to share their opinions on how Coos Bay grade configurations can support student achievement.
We will look at other models across the state and nation and work in small-group settings. Our goal for the day is to develop tangible solutions the District can further explore and then apply to our school buildings. Please let us know if you would like to be involved so we can include everyone in this critical discussion about the future of our children and community.
A complimentary lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to Peggy Ahlgrim at (541) 267-1310 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on attending.
For more information, contact Ariann Lyons: email@example.com.
Attention: School Volunteers
In an effort to keep our classrooms safe and our list of volunteers up to date, Coos Bay Public Schools will now be performing criminal background checks annually. Background checks for current volunteers will expire June 30th.
Volunteer applications will be done electronically this year. Please check back after July 1st for the link to fill out your volunteer application.
For those of you who volunteer, THANKS!! You make our schools a better place.
School Closures or Delayed Starts
Coos Bay Public Schools will utilize the Synrevoice automated phone system to notify families of school closures, delayed starts and other emergencies.
In the event of a closure or delayed start, the automated system will be activated, usually by 6:00 am, and all families will be called and given the message. Included in the message will be a phone number that you can call to get a recorded update. Please be sure your contact information is correct at the schools.
The information will also be sent out to via Flash Alert to the media and posted on the district‘s website at www.cbd9.net. If you would like to receive Flash Alert notification, go to www.flashalert.net/news.html?id=1374. At that site, you can sign up to receive both text messages and e-mails for emergency alerts and news releases.
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.

November 22, 2013 – We’ve had a busy week with our 4th graders swimming and our whole school was able to go to Marshfield High School on Wednesday to see the play, ‘The Suessification of Romeo and Juliet.’ It was a great show and our students were outstanding with their behavior, which made me very proud. The MHS students were fantastic and it is always fun to watch our former students doing great things. It appeared that everyone enjoyed themselves and I’ve heard a lot of positive feedback from many students.
Next week is a short week as we’ll not have school on Thursday and Friday due to the Thanksgiving holiday. I try and look at all the reasons I’m thankful every day. I’m very thankful for the great people I work with and all the great kids and families I am fortunate enough to see every day I come to work. Please take a moment to be thankful for the great kids you have and appreciate every day as a gift.
Have a great weekend!
Dale Inskeep, Principal
