Principal's Message

Hello Sunset Lake Families,


Many reasons to thank you this week!

Due to your generosity, we won the VHS can/bottle fundraiser in celebration of Earth Day. Please the video included in this SMORE that our VHS students shared out to honor the event.

Thank you, families!


If you have driven by Sunset Lake I'm sure you have noticed the large trailers stationed in our parking lot. We are prepping for multiple construction projects going on this summer. We are excited to share we will be getting new windows throughout the whole building. Our front of the building will be getting a "face-lift" as well as new landscaping. Half of our building will be getting new HVAC work done, as well as new ceilings and lighting. Next summer our other half of the building will be completed. This work is made possible from our last Bond approved by our community. Thank you Sunset Lake families for always supporting our schools.


Thank you for your understanding of our continued mask-wearing protocol. Teachers work hard at monitoring the needs of their students to work in extra mask breaks if needed.


Please help us reduce the spread of COVID-19 by constant monitoring of your child's symptoms each morning and reviewing the Student Screener-shown below. We ask that you keep your child home if you suspect a possible exposure and if anyone in your household is waiting for test results.


PLEASE be sure to ALWAYS contact our office if your child is going to be absent from school so we can track reasons for absences and any possible cases.



Please visit this link at State of Michigan Covid for up-to-date information.


Together we can work to minimize exposure for our students and staff. Thank you!


Thank you Sunset Lake Families!


Yours in Learning,

Amie McCaw

Sunset Lake Elementary Principal
