Welcome to Our School

Dear Parents / Guardians:

As much as many of us hate to see the summer come to an end, we are very excited about the upcoming school year and I am looking forward to a fantastic start.  Student athletes are already in the midst of their respective practices and the sounds of our pep band have already filled the school’s hallways.  Needless to say, we are more than ready to join our students, staff, and community members as we embark on another school year representing growth and increased student achievement. 

For the entire school community, September is a time filled with excitement and anticipation.  As the first day of school quickly approaches, we have been working diligently to prepare for the arrival of our students, ensuring both a smooth and positive start to the year.  During the course of the summer, we added additional instructional spaces, installed student artwork showcasing our talent, and are just about finished with our auditorium renovation. These are exciting times for Glen Cove High School.

In the upcoming school year, our focus will be on improving student achievement through the promotion of a positive and supportive learning environment.  To this end, we are launching our Glen Cove P.R.I.D.E initiative which correlates our continued work in providing our students with a welcoming, nurturing and productive learning environment. P.R.I.D.E. represents our expectation that students are Prepared, Respectful, Involved, Diligent, and Ethical; and that we all should manifest pride in ourselves, our school and our community.  We are also initiating a student mentorship program in collaboration with the New York State Student Mentorship Program that will train our students to serve as mentors for their peers.  The goal is to create supportive mentor relationships amongst students, providing students with a great opportunity to make a positive impact on our school community while earning community service credit.  These are just a couple of the initiatives we are undertaking in the upcoming year and we are very excited about the progress we have made and will continue to make as the year progresses. 

Please be reminded that students are expected to report back to school on Tuesday, September 5th at 7:20 in the morning.  Upon arrival, students will report to their respective homerooms where freshmen will receive their ID cards, and all students will receive their locker assignments and schedules.  Upperclassmen are asked to please bring their ID cards.  Please note that homeroom locations will be listed by grade and alphabet and posted throughout the lobby and cafeterias.  After the brief homeroom, students will report to their first period class and continue on a ‘Day A’ schedule for the remainder of the day.  If you wish to view student schedules, including homeroom assignments, prior to September 5th, they will be available on the parent portal.

It is imperative that students carry their ID’s at all times and attend class on a regular basis.  There is a direct correlation between attendance and achievement and as a community we will continue working together to ensure students are performing at their optimal levels.  As a reminder to parents, attendance and grades can again be monitored on the parent portal at any time, so please take advantage of this feature as we work together to support our students.  We also continue to encourage students to take full advantage of our sports, clubs, and academic offerings in the upcoming year.  To this end, it’s imperative that we; staff, administrators, parents, and community members, all continue working together to encourage our students to not only achieve their academic potential, but to participate in as many extracurricular activities as possible.

Our goal at Glen Cove High School is to provide an atmosphere where teachers, students, administrators and parents work closely together to provide an environment that is a true reflection of a positive and supportive community – all working collaboratively towards the same goal, which is to provide our students with the best high school experience possible. 

It really is a pleasure serving Glen Cove as its high school principal and I am very much looking forward to a great school year. 


Sincerely,
Antonio Santana
