Site Council Member Needed
We are in need of a Site Council Community Member. Our site council meets once a month to discuss tax credit funds. Please contact Ashley Walkenbach if you are interested at [email protected]

The Sunset Hills' Site Council is a semi-autonomous body consisting of parents, teachers, and administrators.  As mandated by the Dysart Unified School District, the purpose of Site Council is to manage the collection and distribution of public tax expenditure funds donated to the campus.  Periodically, the council also reviews school policies and offers feedback. Our bylaws dictate that donated funds be utilized for extra-curricular activities; unless otherwise specified by those making the contribution. The distribution of tax expenditures is governed by an application process. All requests are examined by the council on a monthly basis and majority vote decides each pending issue. For the 2020-2021 academic year, the Site Council will focus its efforts on extra-curricular clubs, athletics funding, and staff compensation for club facilitation offered to learners before or after school. Ongoing fundraising, via community tax credit applications, will also play a prominent role in our activities.

Chromebook Distribution
Dates and Times
July 30:  12:00-6:00 pm
August 3:  8:00-10:00 am

Chromebook Distribution
We will be supplying chromebooks in a 1:1 distribution to students this school year. This means that every student who needs a chromebook will receive one, including all students who will be in our Sunset Hills iSchool. This will ensure that all of our students will have the necessary technology for the school year.
 
Because of the 1:1 option, there will be an insurance fee of $25 assessed to your child's account if you check out a chromebook. Your child will have the same device for the duration of the school year. If your student will be returning to campus for in person instruction, they will be traveling to and from school with that device. Here is the presentation that details 1:1 Device Information for Parents and Students.
 
Please note that you do not need to check out a chromebook if your child will be using their own device.

Below is a link to the device user and insurance agreement.  While we will have additional copies, it will help with our distribution process if you are able to fill out the forms prior to arriving at the school for checkout. 
Device User and Insurance Agreement

Please note that you will need ID in order to pick up a chromebook.  We also ask that only one parent or guardian comes to the distribution time in order for us to limit the number of visitors.  Masks are required for all visitors and our staff on our school campus.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding with these safety measures.

8th Grade Celebration
Sunset Hills 8th Grade CelebrationSunset Hills 8th grade celebration flyer
Wednesday, May 20th from 4:00-6:00 pm in the Cafeteria
 
  • All 8th grade teachers will be on campus during this time to pass out spring pictures, yearbooks, athletics certificates, awards certificates, class T-shirts and 8th Grade Promotion certificates and programs.
  • We need to practice social distancing and are asking that everyone limit the people coming to the school to students and parents. This is another opportunity for pick up/drop off of materials and a chance to have face time with the 8th Grade teachers.
  • Students and parents will enter through the main gate and staff & signs will guide you through the process of returning/picking up items.
  • While our only contact will be to distribute items, we would love this time to recognize your student.
  • If you're not able to come during this time, you may come during one of the other return/pickup times, however, the 8th Grade teachers will not be present during those times.

This is not a promotion ceremony; a virtual presentation is being sent via email on May 20th at 2:00 pm to all 8th grade parents.
