New Security System for Kincaid
We am pleased to inform you that the Cobb County School District has added an additional safety feature to the current surveillance system that we have at Kincaid Elementary School. Earlier in the school year, eight high definition cameras were installed in our building. These allow us to view activity inside and outside of the building 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. The cameras, in addition to the Access Control System (electronic badge entry) that has been in place for the past few years, work to form our strongest system of security and supervision ever.
The new feature that will take effect on Monday, May 6, 2013 is a “buzz-in” system at the main entrance of our school. This feature will keep the main entrance door locked at all times except 7:15 – 8:10 a.m. on school days. Outside of that time, all guests will need to “buzz-in”. Part of the system includes a box outside of the main entrance door that is equipped with a door bell and a camera. Staff members working in the front office will receive an alert when a guest arrives and rings the bell. The office staff will be able to see and hear the guest, and once the guest indicates the nature of the visit, the office staff member will “buzz” the guest in, asking them to sign in on the computer in the lobby and report to the front office.
During the first several days of implementation of the
buzz-in system, we expect that we will learn and will
need to make adjustments.
We are counting on your feedback to help us know
how the system is working.
If you’d like to share your feedback, please
contact us at 770-578-7238.
We would also like to remind all parents of the times that are critical to efficient operation of the front door. Your cooperation in following these times keep students in the classroom throughout the instructional day and prevent mistakes that can happen during the dismissal process. These times are:
7:15 a.m. Doors open. Please keep your student with you in the car until 7:15 a.m.
7:50 a.m. Students are expected to be in class at 7:50 a.m. in order to avoid being marked tardy.
1:45 p.m. We will not allow any student checkouts after 1:45 p.m.
2:15 p.m. Announcements and dismissal begin
3:30 p.m. Front office is closed
Thank you so much for your continued support. Together, we keep our students safe!
In this Number Talks session, third grade students demonstrate a “Think Aloud” where they share their mental math strategies for solving a two - digit by one - digit multiplication problem.

Kincaid's Strategic Plan
2012-13 Student Achievement Goals
- Students will demonstrate proficiency in math at or above the expected grade level.
- Students will demonstrate an increase in knowledge in the areas of science and social studies.
2012-13 School Performance Goal
- Teachers will collaborate on ways to reach the new common core curriculum. This will be done through learning communities.
We believe that every student should be valued for the unique qualities they possess. We believe that all decisions should be based on the primary focus of student learning and success. We believe that students learn in different ways and that differentiated instruction should be provided to meet student needs. We believe that a strong foundation in reading, writing, and mathematics is essential to success in all content areas. We believe that effective collaboration within professional learning communities is an essential component of a successful school. We believe that students learn best when they have the appropriate resources available to them, including state of the art technology. We believe that a safe and civil environment promotes optimal student learning. We believe that academic success and strong character development is a shared responsibility of both the school and the parents. We believe that all students can attain character qualities and develop work habits that will assure greater success in learning.
