School Safety Hotline: 844-PUSD-TIP (844-787-3847)



As we begin our last week of the 2017-2018 school year I wanted to offer a heartfelt thank you to the Sunset Hills community for giving me a chance to be the principal of this incredible school. Before this school year started, I kept hearing how strong the SHES community was and what a special place Sunset Hills was. I have been part of many school communities in my career, and I have to say I am proud to call Sunset Hills home. I am thankful for each of you and your children and wish everyone a safe and and fun-filled summer. Hopefully, all of us will make time to unplug and relax while we look forward to the upcoming 2018- 2019 school year - August 22nd will be here before we know it!


Sunset Hills will be dismissing at 1:10 on Thursday, June 14th, the last day of school.



The parking lot will be busy the last week of school.  We have 5th grade promotion on Wednesday, June 13th at 8:45 am and Black Mountain Middle School has 8th grade promotion on Thursday, June 14th at 9:00 am.  Please give yourself extra time to get to school those days as the traffic will be heavy and the parking lot full.  Please drive slowly and remember there is nothing more important than the lives of our children. PLEASE SLOW DOWN when driving through the school parking lot.



Stop by the Lost and Found and see if any items belong to your students.  Remaining clothes after June 14th will be given to Salvation Army. 



We will be having a mural dedicated to Isabella and Cristos Lopez on Monday June 11th at 4:00pm. The mural is located directly outside ESS. All are welcome. Please enter through the office up until 3:45. The office will be closed at 3:45. If you arrive after 3:45 please plan to enter through main school front gate.



The office will be closed from June 22nd through August 7th.  Beginning August 8th the office will be open daily from 7:30 am – 4:00 pm.



New student enrollment is ongoing in the office.  Please be sure to bring the following ORIGINAL documents with you upon enrollment:

Original Birth Certificate, Current Passport or Baptismal Certificate (TK-12). As required by State law, all children entering Kindergarten must be five years of age on or before September 1, 2018.  If your child's birthday is between September 2, 2018 and December 2, 2018, they will be enrolled in Transitional Kindergarten.



Yearbooks will be distributed to students Monday, June 11th.  There are a few yearbooks left. If you would like to purchase a yearbook, please come into the office.



Parents of children with a fifth birthday between June 1st and September 1st, 2018 who wish to enroll their child into a TK class, MUST place their child’s name on a District Interest waitlist. Beginning March 1, 2018, at 8:00 am, go to the District Website and select "TK Interest waitlist" to put your child's name on the list. District staff will notify parents on the Interest List starting in June, or later in the summer, of an opening in TK.  Due to increased numbers of students required to enroll in TK, please note space is very limited and will be determined on a first-come, first served basis.  It is critical for all parents to enroll their students in Kindergarten at their home schools when enrollment begins in May.



PUSD Board Policy 4.415 prohibits volunteers on campus unless they have completed a background check and had a TB Skin Test. All visitors and cleared volunteers must report to the office, sign-in, and wear a visitor's pass. The PTA keeps track of volunteer hours and reports them to the Palomar Council.
