Results of Water Testing Reported to Board of Education & Shared with Parents
(Sept. 13, 2016) In a precautionary, proactive measure, the Ichabod Crane Central School District recently conducted water testing, not only for lead but also for copper. Approximately 275 water sources from every building were tested and the District received the results of the test in mid-August. At the Sept. 6 Board of Education meeting, Superintendent George Zini reported the results of the tests which did show some water sources with elevated levels of lead or copper within the buildings. The District has taken steps to address these sources to ensure that water is safe for consumption. Precautions will remain in effect until each identified area is remediated and retested.
"The safety of our students and staff has always been a priority," said Mr. Zini. "I can assure you that the District will take the necessary steps to ensure that everyone has safe drinking water available to them." Learn More

District to Use Visitor Management System
(Aug. 10, 2016) The Ichabod Crane Central School District will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System in all of our district schools to build on the district's program of campus safety for students and faculty. The Raptor system will better allow us to track visitors, contractors and volunteers in our schools. Upon entering a district building, visitors will be asked to provide a valid state-issued ID, which will be scanned into the system.
A letter providing information about this new protocol has been mailed to parents/guardians. We are also making that letter available here as we recognize many visitors are grandparents and other community members. Download the letter
