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.

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.

Helpful Hints: “My Words Can Make Me Look Smart”
|Hey Kids (Grown-ups, too!),
Have you ever struggled to remember a pesky grammar rule? Have you ever found that you sometimes make silly mistakes when you’re writing? Our staff have created a list of hints to help with common mistakes we all make from time to time.
Please click below for details.
Principal’s Pad – Like a whirlwind school has been flying by with a lot of activities happening. Fundraiser items came in and thank you for the support for our school. We have the OAKS Smarter Balance state testing that has started, field trips have been happening most days with swimming being a part of the 4th and 5th grade activities and even a little walk over to Madison by Mr. Krissie’s class to estimate and calculate some math problems connected to their garden.
I know there have been several media stories connected to our school district lately and I wanted all of you to know that we keep our students as our priority and move forward keeping our routines as consistent as possible. Often times when our students have a lot of turmoil in their lives, it’s the routines and consistency that help our students focus on their school responsibilities while finding positive ways to cope with the stressors that may be going on outside of school. Whenever I make decisions in my job, I always try and filter the decision through the concept, “What is best for our kids?” I don’t make decisions that make things the easiest for the teachers or principal because our students are our number one priority and I believe their needs should be driving everything we do at Sunset. Thanks for your encouragement and support during this busy period of time. Encourage your children to try their best on their state testing, consistently tell them about the things they do well and use positive encouragement on things they can improve and always love and be able forgive your children. We’ll all make mistakes and most of the time we know it. When we, the adults, are able to help our children make their mistakes turn into learning experiences, then we are doing something right. We’ve got a school full of fantastic children and each and every one of them brings something special to our school every day!
Have a great weekend,
Civil War Connections: 150 Years in 150 Minutes
Students, families, and community members are invited to participate in “Civil War Connections: 150 Years in 150 Minutes” on May 1, 2015, a Community Learning Night at the Marshfield High School campus. Evening events will introduce attendees to the culture of Civil War America. A complimentary Civil War-era meal will be offered from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the MHS cafeteria. Participants will “enlist” in the MHS Gym’s foyer and receive an informational packet. Activity stations – including communicating with signal flags, using codes, writing with quill pens, and games and pastimes of the era – will be open from 5:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. in the MHS Gym and Pirate Hall. This event corresponds with the culmination of the Civil War Sesquicentennial (2011-2015) and is a prelude to the May 30, 2015, rededication of the 1915 Sailor-Soldier Monument in the Marshfield Pioneer Cemetery.
