Pinwheels for Peace at Kincaid

Art Installation September 20th and 21st

Students at Kincaid will be creating a work of art that will be on display in front of the school beginning on the afternoon of Thursday, September 20th and ending on the afternoon of Friday, September 21st. Families are encouraged to walk through the exhibit (but please do not touch the art) for its one day run. After the fall break, students will be able to take their pinwheels home. This is one of many events/activities planned for this year as part of our "No Place For Hate" campaign.

Pinwheels for Peace is an art installation project started in 2005 by two art teachers, Ann Ayers and Ellen McMillan at Monarch High School in Florida, as a way for their students to use
Peace Day to express their feelings about what is going on in the world and in their lives. The first Pinwheels for Peace were installed on 21 September 2005. In its first year
500,000 pinwheels were planted. In 2012 the number had grown to 4,000,000 pinwheels and the project continues to grow.

7:15  Car/Bus Drop Off Begins
7:45 Tardy Bell Rings – School Begins!

AM Procedures

  • Students must stay in the car until 7:15am when the bell rings or when the staff members on car duty report to their area. The school doors are locked until 7:15am and we do not have staff on duty to supervise students until 7:15.
  • While moving through the car line, pull all the way up to fill the entire drop off area, which ranges from the end of the sidewalk in the front circle, to the drop off sign along the entry drive.  Our lengthy drop off area allows us to unload 12 – 15 cars simultaneously, which keeps our car lane moving quickly and smoothly.
    • DO NOT slow down the line by only pulling up to the front door, or waiting to drop off your child right at the front door
    • DO NOT pull into the disabled parking spaces.  We have parents of students with physical disabilities who need these spaces.
    • DO NOT pull into the bus area.
    • Prepare your child to exit the car in a timely manner by having backpacks ready and saying good-byes before you get to the drop off area.
    • Please make sure your child exits the car on the right side of your car (curb side)
    • Do not exit your car.  We have personnel available to assist your child(ren).
    • After 7:45 please park your car, walk your child(ren) into the building, sign them in, and obtain a tardy pass.

PM Procedures

  • To ensure student safety, no student checkouts can be made in the office after 1:45p.m.
  • Car riders are picked up in the car line area in the front of the school between 2:10 and 2:30 in cars with a Kincaid car tag.
  • Walkers are dismissed from the front door of the school and will be released to approved adults beginning at 2:10.
  • Car riders and walkers must be picked up by 2:30pm.
  • Students not picked up by 2:30 pm will be checked into ASP(After-school program), charged a $10 registration fee, if they have not already registered, and a $7 daily ASP fee.

If you have not received a car tag yet, please send a note to your child's teacher.  After this week, any car without a car tag, will have to park and come into the building with ID to sign out a student.
