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.

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!

Kerrydale to serve Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
Our school is one of the 138 schools in the state of Virginia that has been awarded the "Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Grant."  The purpose of this program is to expand the variety of fruits and vegetables students are exposed to, increasing fruit and vegetable consumption to improve their present and future health.  We will be able to provide a fresh fruit and vegetable snack to your child three days a week at no charge.  The students will have the opportunity to try some familiar items like apples, watermelon, carrots and radishes, as well as some more unusual items such as figs, persimmons and kumquats.  Please alert the school nurse of any concerns you may have regarding food allergies. We look forward to providing this experience for your child!
