Your child's safety is important to us.
Riding school transportation is a privilege for students, but that privilege comes with responsibilities of acting appropriately to other students and the bus driver. Rules have been established to ensure the safety of all children riding the bus. Bus transportation rules are listed in the “Code of Behavior” book which is given to students on the first day of school. Click here to see PWCS Regulation 433-1 Transportation for Students: Safety on School Buses. Please read and discuss this information with your child. All students need to be aware of the bus rules, including those who walk to school because they may need to ride the bus sometime during the school year. At Kerrydale, we are confident that our students will model our vision of being personally and socially responsible citizens.
When dropping off and picking up students, please pay attention to the signs, cones, crossing guards and other staff who are helping keep our students safe. Click here for Kerrydale’s Transportation Guidelines. Please follow these guidelines when on Kerrydale’s Campus.
A visitor’s badge is required during school visitation. Government issued identification is required for student pick-up and visitation.
If your child will be absent, send in a note or call us at our attendance line: 703-590-2828.
From the Nurse's Office:

Please check out the links under Nurse's News (on the left) to find out more information about School HealthTreatment Plans, Medications and Vaccinations that upcoming 6th Graders MUST have before the Fall. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Mrs. McLean, Kerrydale's School Nurse.

Help the Earth & Kerrydale!

Kerrydale collects and receives money for every ink or toner printer cartridge or old cell phone we recycle. The cartridges are recycled and if the phones can still be used, they go to a women’s violence charity to help women who need them or they get recycled as well. Please help Kerrydale work towards a cleaner earth while earning money to help our technology program. Cartridges and phones can be sent in with your child anytime or brought up to the computer lab and dropped off in the big box in the mailroom or in the front of the lab. In the past, we have used the money to purchase student software, digital cameras, headphones and other equipment.  Thank you in advance for your support!
