Welcome to Our School

March 2020

Dear Parents / Guardians:

Hard to believe we are just weeks away from the official start of spring which is always an exciting time for Glen Cove High School.  March will move along at its usual quick pace as we have so many activities planned for our students and community; the Annual Red and Green Games (District Games), the Junior Prom, Glen Cove’s Got Talent, spring sports, and the Annual PTSA Scholarship Luncheon. Needless to say, there is a lot in store for our high school community.   Please refer to our calendar and come out to not only be entertained, but to support our students and school community.  It is through your involvement that we pave the way toward success in our school.

While this winter season has spared us from storms and school closings, the flu season was one of the worst in our memory.  Several students and staff members were afflicted this season and so while the weather seems to be becoming more moderate, we still need to be cautious and proactive in ensuring we maintain our personal health by following habits like washing hands regularly and by all means, staying home should you be feeling sick and/or feverish.  Above and beyond the flu, the world is dealing with the potential spread of the Coronavirus which has been causing a lot of alarm in countries around the world.  At the time I am drafting this letter, there have been potential cases right here in Nassau County.  Posted on the website and mailed home is an information sheet the district has put together in collaboration with other school districts and health agencies.  Please refer to the sheet and should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school, your doctor, or visit the Center for Disease Control at their website, cdc.gov. 

Finally, I have always expressed how proud I am to serve the Glen Cove Community as its high school principal.  We are a great community of diverse people that continue to make strides in student achievement and community activism.  Our students make us proud on a daily basis and I am always impressed at our students’ accomplishments despite the conditions of our facilities, including science laboratories that have not been updated since they were initially built.  For anyone who has visited the building, despite our best efforts to make the high school appealing, there is so much that is in disrepair.  To this end, the school district and the Board of Education are proposing a third bond referendum and a vote on March 19.   Polling stations will be available both at the High School and at Connolly Elementary School.  It is imperative that community members come out and exercise their right to vote.  The school district is looking to address various structural concerns in its various buildings, including extensive and much needed work at our high school.  For more information you can visit the district’s website and click on the “Bond Proposal” link located right on our homepage. 

As always, I want to thank you for your continued support and again, it really is a pleasure serving the Glen Cove community as its high school principal.   Should you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone 516-801-7610 or email at asantana@glencovcschools.org. 

Sincerely,
Antonio Santana
