Important Information for Parents

The Ichabod Crane Safe Schools Committee has developed an informational brochure pertaining to teen alcohol and substance abuse.

The brochure, "Parents Are the Last to Know" provides practical information, as well as resources to help parents address this very important issue that touches all our lives.

Information that will help the students achieve success at ICHS:

STUDENT ATTENDANCE
The Board of Education has approved the Attendance Policy to begin in September. Students, who miss 24 class days in a full-year class and 12 days in the semester class, may lose credit. Please review the Attendance Policy. For questions, please contact the main office. This policy is reviewed with all students during the first week of school. 

COURSE CREDIT
All students are required to complete 22 units of credit to graduate. No student is considered to be an official member of a class or in a grade homeroom without having earned the minimum number of credits. All seniors are required to be enrolled in a minimum of five classes each semester.

DRESS CODE
Today’s clothing styles can present parents with a challenge in purchasing what is deemed appropriate. However, it is important to maintain a school environment that is proper and comfortable for all of the children and adults in the building. The dress code is included in the Code of Conduct, which students receive on the first day of school.

If at any time you have questions about the High School programs, or your child’s progress, please contact us.

STUDENT PARKING
Parking privileges are available only to juniors and seniors who have agreed to adhere to the stipulations of our student parking agreement, and they must also attend the driving seminar. 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 the Parking PermitApplication.. 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.
