Kerrydale Announcements
From Our Principal
    Hi, Kerrydale families! 

   We are looking forward to kicking off the 2015-2016 school year on Monday, August 31st. As we prepare for an efficient opening, please remember the following: 

-Students may arrive at 8:35 ONLY if they are eating breakfast. The first bell rings at 8:50.  

-All visitors will need to report to the office. Please bring your photo identification with you. 

-All Prince William County Schools will provide a Grab and Go breakfast this year. Students will choose between a hot or cold bagged breakfast. Depending on their arrival time, students will eat in the cafeteria or the classroom. This will ultimately allow for more learning time for our students! 

-At dismissal, please remember that if you are walking to pick up your child, the child will be in the cafeteria. Please bring your photo identification with you. 

-In the afternoon, the car rider lane will be for car riders only. There will not be parking in the side parking lot. If your child is a car rider, please stay in your car and do not park. You will stay with the flow of traffic and a Kerrydale staff member will escort your student to your car. 

-Your child will be given a dismissal tag during the first week of school. 

-As we put our dismissal plan in action, I do expect delays at first. Please be patient with us as we work to provide the safest dismissal for our students. 

We are looking forward to a super year!  Mrs. Gudinas

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!
