"Teen Driving: A Family Affair" To Be Held at RHS on Thursday, April 9, 2015; Attendance Mandatory for Student Parking Permit

We know that most alcohol-related fatalities occur between the ages of 16 – 21.  Rhinebeck High School and the Council of Addiction Prevention and Education (CAPE) of Dutchess County have joined together in an effort to prevent these tragedies.

On the evening of Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 7:00 p.m, Rhinebeck High School and the Council will host a special program for students and their families. The program is entitled “Teen Driving – A Family Affair,” and it is mandatory for students who are applying forSchool Parking Permits and who have not attended the program in previous years. 

A parent must also attend with his/her son or daughter. Please plan to arrive by 6:30 for registration so that we can begin the program promptly at 7:00. To show respect for our speakers (who are all volunteers), no one will be admitted after 7:00 pm.


Our guest speakers will include a victim impact speaker, a medical professional, a representative from the insurance industry, and a representative from the District Attorney’s Office.
