Principal's Message

I would like to take a minute to thank you for your understanding and patience during this COVID-19 pandemic. While closing school and transitioning to distance learning wasn’t perfect, I think we have developed a framework
for which we can build on in the future if needed. I feel confident that the staff at MHS will continue to build on
the successes from last Spring and make the appropriate improvements to meet the needs of all our students
moving forward.

Some students may have received an Incomplete in one or more classes through distance learning. These students will still have an opportunity to earn that credit bypassing the next class in sequence this coming Fall. For
example, if a student received an Incomplete in English 10 this Spring, they will be awarded a Pass if they
successfully pass English 11 in the Fall.

This past week the Department of Education released its Ready Schools, Safe Learners guideline for schools and
districts to begin planning for next Fall. We will be looking for feedback from students and parents on how and
what you would like to see from school next Fall. Please be looking for a survey in the coming days on the Coos
Bay School District webpage.

Lastly, if you have a Chromebook you still need to turn in, you can do that at the District Office. It is essential that
we get them back so they can be cleaned, updated, and made ready to use again in September. Thank you!
As always, if you have questions please feel free to contact me at 541.267.1401 or email me at

Buenas tardes,

Me gustaría tomarme un minuto para agradecerle su comprensión y paciencia durante esta pandemia de COVID19. Si bien el cierre de la escuela y la transición al aprendizaje a distancia no fue perfecto, creo que hemos
desarrollado un marco para el cual podemos construir en el futuro si es necesario. Estoy seguro de que el personal de MHS continuará construyendo sobre los éxitos de la primavera pasada y hará las mejoras apropiadas para satisfacer las necesidades de todos nuestros estudiantes en el futuro.

Algunos estudiantes pueden haber recibido un Incompleto en una o más clases a través del aprendizaje a distancing. Estos estudiantes aún tendrán la oportunidad de obtener ese crédito al aprobar la próxima clase en secuencia este próximo otoño. Por ejemplo, si un estudiante recibió un Incomplete en Inglés 10 esta primavera, se le otorgará un Pase si aprueba con éxito el Inglés 11 en el otoño.

La semana pasada, el Departamento de Educación publicó su guía Ready Schools, Safe Learners para que las
escuelas y los distritos comiencen a planificar para el próximo otoño. Estaremos buscando comentarios de
estudiantes y padres sobre cómo y qué les gustaría ver en la escuela el próximo otoño. Busque una encuesta en los próximos días en la página web del Distrito Escolar de Coos Bay.
Por último, si tiene una Chromebook que todavía necesita entregar, puede hacerlo en la Oficina del Distrito. Es
esencial que los recuperemos para que puedan limpiarse, actualizarse y estar listos para usar nuevamente en
septiembre. ¡Gracias!

Como siempre, si tiene preguntas, no dude en comunicarse conmigo al 541.267.1401 o enviarme un correo

ARK Project

The ARK Project is a school-based drop-in center providing basic needs, crisis intervention, and advocacy, and essential support services to homeless children and youth, ages 0-21, and their families throughout Coos County. During this crisis, the ARK has been up to some exciting things and have partnered with organizations to better serve children and youth in our community. The ARK has been going the extra mile by delivering hot meals in the summer to at-risk and homeless families. The meals were provided by Restaurant 0, Buzzed, and Top Dog Coffee Company. The ARK partnered with the Bandon Community Youth Center when receiving a $1,500 grant from United Way. This grant helped them create 180 “activity bags” for elementary and middle school students, which was handed out in June. These bags contain “fun craft projects” for kiddos to end an unconventional school year. The ARK received a second grant of $5,000 from Wild Rivers Coast Alliance to provide 120 hygiene bags each month from March through September. These bags were distributed between all Coos County school districts and homeless families. In addition, the ARK received three additional grants, total $4,000, from United Way to restock the emergency food pantry, basic need items, and transportation vouchers for families. Coos Elderly Services is providing the ARK with COVID informational bags to hand out to families as they come in. Lastly, the Bay Area Chamber of Education Committee beautified the drop-in center to create a more inviting place for our homeless children and youth and their families to visit in their time of need. Currently the ARK is open Monday-Thursday from 1-5pm by appointment only. The new location is 817 S. 10th St. Coos Bay, OR 97420 directly behind Marshfield High School between the woodshop and theatre.
