IF YOU NEED FOOD ASSISTANCE....

______________________________________________________

During week two of Cobb Schools’ partnership with MUST Ministries, the District and non-profit have built a long-term solution to provide students with a 5-day supply of breakfasts and lunches at 8 school locations on Mondays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The first day of the meal distributions will be Monday, March 23. 

The school locations selected for the meal distributions include schools with more than 50% Free and Reduced Lunch populations. 

Cobb Schools Food Service staff will make the food as it is provided by the District and MUST volunteers will distribute to students curbside. The meals can only be served to Cobb County students under 18 years of age, and students must be physically present.  

The weekly breakfast and lunch distributions can be sustained through the rest of the 2019-2020 school year or until Cobb Schools re-opens. However, MUST needs volunteers to help by giving food donations and to sign up here to help with food distributions at schools. Please join us as we help our community in need. 

 Breakfast and Lunch School Distribution Locations from 11 am – 1 pm:

·       Acworth Elementary 

·       Bryant Elementary 

·       Campbell HS 

·       Compton Elementary 

·       East Cobb Middle 

·       Garrett Middle  

·       Osborne High  

·       Riverside Intermediate 

The new school locations will replace sites where food boxes were provided this week.

Classroom Placement Input for 2020-2021

If there is information that our staff needs to consider to place your child, please complete this online survey by May 1, 2020.  Do not include a request for a specific teacher since personnel assignments can change year to year, and there are numerous other variables that enter into student placement.  Please complete one survey per child, and remember...with or without a feedback form, each Kincaid student will be placed with great care.

Here comes the Bus App Is Now Available!!!

The Cobb Schools Transportation Department transports more than 70,000 students via about 1,000 school buses every day. Now every parent will know exactly where the specific bus carrying their child is at on the route to and from school.  In addition to giving scheduled and actual arrival times for home and school, the app will also provide push and email notifications when the bus is near. So, thanks to the bus app, Cobb parents will know when the bus enters their neighborhood. You can customize when you want to receive the alert from 250 yards to 2 miles away.

To ease stress in the mornings and afternoons, download the bus app in the Apple App Store or on Google Play, or visit herecomesthebus.com.  You must have a student enrolled in a CCSD school to use the service. Your account is secure and password protected.  Use CCSD's school code of 87881 during sign up.

have many safety initiatives in place to keep our students safe.
For more information, please visit our new Cobb Shield Website dedicated to school safety information




 Kincaid Elementary School serves gifted and high achieving students through differentiated curriculum and instruction with specially trained, certified teachers.  We currently offer Advanced Content Courses in 4th and 5th grade Reading, Language Arts, and Math. Screening for advanced content classes is completed automatically prior to the start of 4th grade. Placement in advanced content classes is based on nationally normed standardized tests such as the Iowa Test.  Fourth grade students in the advanced content classes must maintain an 80 or above average in each advanced content class to remain in the program for 5th grade .

Our gifted teachers also offer talent development services to our students in non-AC courses for additional opportunities to think critically and creatively.
