Join us for a PTO Movie Night!
Join us at the PTO Movie Night on Friday, January 30th from 6-8pm. The proceeds from this movie night will go to help defray the cost of the upcoming fourth and fifth grade field trips. Cost: $5 a student or $10 a family. This event allows Kerrydale students to be dropped off, starting at 5:45pm, for an evening of movie fun while the parents can get a couple hours to themselves. Only Kerrydale students will be allowed. A G rated movie will be shown that evening. Refreshments will be available for purchase.  What a great way for both students and parents to have fun!
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. No breakfast is served. Kerrydale opens at 10:50am on two hour delayed opening days. 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, PWCS-TV (Comcast channel 18 and Verizon channel 36, the school division's closing line: 703-791-2776, check this website, the new PWCS mobile app, 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!
