Welcome to Our School

Dear Parents/Guardians:

I can’t believe the month of September is already behind us. While having four continuous weeks of school was great in terms of establishing routines and building endurance for the rigors of the school day, students and staff alike are very much looking forward to a few days off in October. That said, our freshmen have acclimated well to the high school and I am looking forward to many great things ahead for all our students. This past month, meetings were held with each grade level and school administrators and support staff addressed students not just on our expectations for student decorum, but on all of the resources available to help make their high school careers successful.

October is an extremely busy month for students and staff alike. Progress reports will be issued, we will be hosting several college fairs, and senior meetings will be scheduled in Guidance. We are also hosting several College Board examinations. The SAT and ACT will be administered here at the high school on Saturday, October 1st and Saturday, October 22nd respectively. Please note that the school calendar contains the registration dates for all of these exams and seniors should be mindful of college application deadlines. Information is available in the guidance office as well as on our website. Unlike the other College Board exams, the PSAT will be administered to all sophomores and juniors on Wednesday, October 19th, and school will be closed for our freshman and seniors. Please note that sophomores and juniors will have a modified day. Details have been mailed home, but should you have any questions about any of the aforementioned, please contact your child’s guidance counselor.

On a lighter note, spirit week kicks off October 5th and culminates with our pep rally and a carnival hosted by our senior class on Friday, October 14th, followed by our Homecoming Parade and Game Saturday, October 15th. Big Red will be facing New Hyde Park High School and we are hoping to see many community members come out to support our school.

Your involvement in our various events and organizations is very important to our school. Thanks again for your continued support and it really is a pleasure serving the Glen Cove community.

Glen Cove Students Vote


Glen Cove High School sophomores in Valerie Stazzone’s English class had an opportunity to vote for the next United States president as part of a culminating activity to their unit study of nonfiction.

Prior to the election, the students read multiple articles that focused on education, national security, climate change and gender equality to become familiar with the issues and views of presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. They also read both candidates’ platforms and watched the first two presidential debates. In class, the students discussed what they learned in a Socratic seminar. According to Stazzone, she initiated the unit by asking students if they felt they had a voice in the community.

“It’s important for the students to realize they have a voice,” Stazzone said. “When we began this unit, many of them had preconceived opinions about each candidate. Through this process, they were able to identify and focus on issues they supported and match them with the candidate that best represented their beliefs.”  

As part of the class’s election process, each student filled out a voter registration card and cast his or her vote. The votes will be tallied with the votes of other high school students across the country on

Glen Cove Students Get Back to Learning


The district opened its doors and welcomed students on Sept. 6 for what promises to be an exciting school year.

Throughout the district, educators eagerly awaited the arrival of students, including Deasy School’s new Principal Melanie Arfman and Superintendent Dr. Maria Rianna, who greeted elementary students as they arrived ready to learn. Kindergartners enjoyed a few extra moments with parents in their respective classrooms before getting acclimated to their new environment, while first- and second-graders embarked on the school year with their new teachers leading the way.

Principal Arfman visited many classrooms throughout the morning, introducing herself and welcoming students. Arfman said she’s looking forward to creating relationships with students and their families in the upcoming school year.

“I’m incredibly excited to begin this school year as principal of Deasy School,” Arfman said. “It was a dream come true to see those smiling faces come through the door and I’m thrilled to have an opportunity to work closely with the Deasy family.”
