Superintendent Advisory Team Members Needed
Superintendent Dawn Granger is looking for parent volunteers to be on the Superintendent’s Advisory Team (SAT). The SAT is a group that meets monthly with Dawn and is comprised of parents representing each school in the Coos Bay district. If you are interested in being on the committee or have questions how you can represent your child’s school, please contact your school’s administrator. For more information about the SAT, go to the Superintendent’s Advisory Team webpage @ www.cbd9.net under the Parents & Community Link or call 541-267-1310. Meetings take place at Milner Crest Education Center, 1255 Hemlock Ave in Coos Bay on the first Monday of each month at 12:00 noon.
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.

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.
January 16, 2015 – We have a short week next week with Monday being Dr. Martin Luther King Day and Friday is a grade day for teachers to work on report cards. Friday marks the half-way point of our school year. As report cards come home remember that we are using primarily a ‘proficiency grading’ approach. The scores/grades half-way through the year will mostly be lower marks than at the end of the year. Most of the standards that our students are assessed on have been taught but some of them either haven’t been taught yet or there will be more instructional support and practice through the rest of the school year. If you have any questions about proficiency grading or information you receive with your child’s report card, please don’t hesitate to give me a call and I’d be happy to talk with you and I’ll do my best to answer any questions you might have.
Have a great holiday weekend!
