There are no security updates for sid.  New versions have security fixes, but 
there is no separate repository for security-patched packages, and there are 
no formal announcements for security patched packages.

Tracking unstable every day will deal with the security issues, but it isn't 
something you want to do on a machine that is supposed to be reliable.

A user-base of 300 users should be fine on such a machine.  It probably 
wouldn't handle 300 people checking their mail at the same time though.
