The seminar is given only a few times each year. Students do not have to have their permit or license to attend the seminar. If your student does not have their license at this time but may obtain one during the school year, they should attend the seminar, so they don’t miss out.
If your student is a junior or senior, please submit theApplication.. Please review the rules carefully with your child. It is important that this information is thoroughly understood by all. We never want to be in the position of a student or his/her family having to shoulder the financial burden of a vehicle being towed from school property.
Ichabod Crane is a closed campus. In accordance with our conduct code, students may not be excused on a regular basis during lunches and study halls. Our concern for students leaving is twofold. First, there is the issue of safety in terms of students on the roads in cars. They often take with them other students who may or may not be excused. Second and of equal importance, are the increasing numbers of students who are returning late or not at all for their scheduled classes. Students who leave without permission will face loss of parking privileges and/or assignment of demerits.
