Are You Moving?
If you're changing addresses this summer, be sure to fill out the "Moving Questionnaire". It will provide Kerr staff with a heads up If you already know your family won't be returning in August. If you're just changing addresses within the Kerr area, the questionnaire will help ensure you receive important mail (like teacher assignments) for "Meet the Teacher Night"!
