The Vision of Kincaid Elementary is to create a learning environment where all students are motivated to work hard, do the right thing and learn something every day.

The mission of Kincaid Elementary is to encourage every individual child to reach his or her potential while celebrating the diversity of our school family. We strive to create a safe and cooperative environment where students will develop and demonstrate responsibility and respect for themselves and others.

We believe that every student should be valued for his or her unique qualities.

We believe that all decisions should be based on 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 contest areas.

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 families.

We believe that all students can attain character qualities and develop work habits that will assure greater success in learning.

A few reminders now that the cold weather is here

           Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather.  Remember weather permitting, all students go outside for a short time each day. Students who are not dressed appropriately will remain inside.

                        With the change in weather we experience a change in the number of cars dropping off each morning. Although the temperatures have fallen, we still encourage all students to ride the bus.  Students who ride the bus are never marked tardy even if for some reason their bus arrives after the bell.  For the safety of all studentsNo cars are permitted in the bus lane for parking or drop off.  To keep the car line moving we have additional staff out there positioned around the circle to help open car doors.  When a staff member approaches your car please allow your student to get out.  The staff will make sure they safely get to the front door and inside the building.  Since only approximately 6 cars can unload at the front door, waiting until you get there slows the line down.

            Remember any students not in the classroom by the time the bell rings at 7:50 am are considered tardy.  If your child is tardy you will need to park and come inside to check your child into school.
