Sunset wants to continue to enhance communication between our school and community. In addition to your teachers’ newsletters and our school website, we now have Sockeye Express E-News available.
Subscribers to our E-News will receive notification when a current E-newsletter has been posted to the school web site. We will also use E-News to notify subscribers of emergency related information.This can be a great way to share school news with extended family members or have it available at work.
To sign up, just click the link to the left.
