Inclement Weather Reminders
In the case of a delayed school opening or closing, any activities/meetings (Cardinal Voices, Walk to School Morning, etc) scheduled before school are cancelled. When school is delayed, please do not just drop off your child at the normal time. There is no one available at that time to supervise them, as school staff is also on a delayed arrival schedule.

If wintry weather is forecasted,  please listen to your local news radio/TV station, check this website, the PWCS web page, facebook page and twitter feeds for any news on school delays or closings. You can also sign up for email/text alerts regarding PWCS inclement weather/emergency closings.  For more information on Closings & Emergencies and to sign up for alerts, please click here or the link in the Parent Guide. Be safe!

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!
