Question: What is the cost, and how do we pay?
Answer: Breakfast is served, free of charge, to all students in classrooms at the start of the day.
Lunch includes a main entrée and milk. Elementary Lunch prices are $1.85 a day or $9.25 per week and $.40 a day or $2.00 per week for those students whose families qualify for reduced-price meal benefits. Each child will have an individual account so that you can pay in advance by cash or by check, in any amount. As the account is nearing its end, you will be notified several days in advance.

The child could also pay on a daily basis, but that is up to you to decide with your child. The website to pay online for school lunches is MyLunchMoney.com.
Question: How may I contact my child’s teacher?
Answer: All of the teachers' classroom phone numbers may be found by clicking on Staff on the Kerr Home Page. Teachers are available for phone calls before and after school hours. During regular school hours you may leave a voice-mail message, and the teacher will return your call when the school day is over. Calls are not permitted into the classroom during times of instruction.
Question: What time can I drop my student off for school?
