Have you people have any idea who Stephen Kerr is. He is considered a person of interest in the disappearance of his adopted son Jalick Rainwalker.An adoption both Kerr and his wife were trying to disolve.

Yes....we are innocent until found other wise. But please do not put other children at risk. For more info you can contact Greenwich police chief,Bell.Greenwich is where young Jalick lived with his adoptive family.Thanks so much for listening.......

SK's picture is disturbing at best. Stephen Kerr's a volunteer at Long Trail School promoting social responsibility as a core value of Long Trail School??!!! Events such as these support Long Trail students' efforts to give back as good citizens and to serve others????????

Stephen Kerr lied to the FBI, is a person of interest concerning his missing son, and refuses to take a lie detector test!!!!!!!!!! Stephen Kerr is a volunteer with this private LT school with 6th graders in front of a wood chipper no less!!!!!!!!!! Many Greenwich locals reported Stephen Kerr put his son in a wood chipper!!!!!!!!!!

Please someone slap me back to reality!!! Are you kidding me???? Someone has to stop this!!! Manchester Journal and Long Trail School should have their HEADS examined!!!! MJ, please stop promoting Long Trail School!!!!!!....They are nuts....their volunteer lied to the FBI regarding his own missing son, and they know he did this...it's no secret, and they allow him to stand proudly with the head of LT school promoting good citizenship????????!! Give me a brake......my GOD!!!!!!!!!! What the hell??????????

LTS 6th grade announces community service successes

The Manchester Journal

Friday, Feb. 20, 2009 DORSET — During the holiday season, Long Trail School's sixth graders participated in two community service events and learned a lot while helping others.

In December, the sixth graders requested help from everyone at LTS in bringing food items for donation to holiday food baskets. The contributions filled 12 baskets which were part of the 121 baskets, clothing and presents distributed through the Dorset Church to families in Dorset, Pawlet, Rupert, West Pawlet, and Danby.

In early January, these same students organized a Christmas tree collection and recycling program. The trees were picked up for a suggested donation and were chipped by Stratton Tree Service for spring use as mulch around the LTS campus. 47 trees were processed and $550 was collected. The students decided to give $150 to the ASPCA to alleviate needless fear, pain and suffering in animals' lives. They donated $200 to Smile Train, which provides free cleft surgery for millions of poor children in developing countries and free cleft-related training for doctors and medical professionals. Also, the students sent $200 to the World Wildlife Fund. They selected four animals to assist: the polar bear, the sea otter, the tiger and the lynx, which is the School's mascot.

The sixth graders is grateful to all community members who supported their efforts; their advisors, administrators and teachers who gave their time; Todd at Stratton Tree Service who donated his time and equipment to mulch the trees; and Jodi and Tom Polich for their invaluable support. Social responsibility is one of the core values of Long Trail School. Events such as these support Long Trail students' efforts to give back as good citizens and to serve others.

To Whom it May concern: Why on earth is this man allowed to be a mentor or role model at this school? Do you not realize that this man is a person of interest in the disappearance of his own adopted son? Mr. Kerr has not been forthcoming in helping resolve issues and events surrounding his sons dissappearance.Jailiek has been missing since he was last seen driving away from the Red Robin in Latham NY. There he and his father dined then left the resturuant on their way back to Greenwhich. Now why on Earth would any school allow an man who is a person of interest in his own sons disappearance anywhere near these children at this school? Do you people not realize that Jaliek's story and the search for this child has grown international? How do you people not see that this man could be potentially the very person responsible for this child being missing? I beg you to reconsider you alliance with this "person of interest " in his childs disappearance.

Yes it does and I agree with Seeking Justice. This man should not be around these children.He is a "person of interest" in an active missing chids case(his own) why these people don't see the injustice I'll never know.

My friend called the school, and now the secretary is saying Kerr IS a volunteer! This school is nuts. So which is it...I wonder? Do the parents of LTS know he's a volunteer? Do the parents want their children to work along side a person that lies to the FBI?

This is disturbing I thought their stand was a week or 2 ago that he was Not afilliated with this school? How can thay just sit by and knowingly allow a"person of interest" since day 2 of his adopted sons disappearance with conflicting accounts to what lead to his disappearance meaning Jaliek either was a RUNAWAY or was MISSING which botched this whole search for this child from the beginning. How ,Why would anyone let a person with such unfinished business and a STILL MISSING ADOPTED SON anywhere around these other families children? I as a concerned parent and grandparent would have severe issues with this. I thought this school valued it self with its oure moral standard? Maybe its not such a good place for children right now with a person of interst hanging around .I know my children would not attend not with a man who's actively being investigated by the authorities for a unc solved missing child case......IMO

It seems that the school changed their story when someone else called. I don't know what to believe, but I do believe that the parents of the school should be notified that he's working with their children. Then the parents can decide if they want to allow their children to participate or not.
