Welcome to Robert Kerr Elementary

Welcome and greetings from the outstanding staff at Robert Kerr Elementary School.  At Robert Kerr we provide academic and social/emotional curriculum for students in the second through fifth grades for the Durand Area School District. We have created an atmosphere in our building that is positive, supportive, and energetic for approximately 350 students.
At Robert Kerr we offer a multi-tiered system of support for both reading and math curriculum. All grade levels share a master schedule and throughout the day reading and math curriculum are taught at the general education setting, a secondary setting adjusted towards the individual student’s needs, and a third tier which delivers specialized academic support in a small group setting for those students who need additional support. We are also a MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) school which allows us to ensure social and emotional issues are being supported. 
Our staff is dedicated to the students at Robert Kerr.  We also recognize the importance of a positive working relationship with families.  Together, we can help to ensure that all students have a successful, positive, and fun academic experience that can be continued throughout their academic career.  We appreciate your support and trust in educating your child.    

News & Announcements

Snow Day!

Dear Fellow Railroaders,
School will be closed Friday, March 10 due to rapidly deteriorating weather conditions.

Ice Day!

Hello Railroaders,

Due to the ice and snowstorm wreaking havoc on our roads, Durand Area Schools will be closed Thursday, February 23.
Please be cautious if you need to be out on the roads.

Have a good evening,


Snow Day!

As many of you know, in most cases, when the forecast reaches the level of a Warning, the county schools all close down. We have now entered the level of a Warning, which will result in the cancelation of school tomorrow. The worst of the weather will be with us in the late afternoon, so all afternoon and evening activities will be canceled as well.

Apparently there is a real possibility that we may receive a significant amount of ice and or sleet during this weather event. Please remind your young drivers that brakes are not functional in breaking situations when dealing with roads that are iced, like we might see once the storm arrives. (Sorry, I taught driver’s education for 9 years, so I worry even more about new driver’s on the road.)

Again, School canceled and all evening activities on Wednesday, February 22.
