Dear Glen Cove High School Community,


We hope our Glen Cove High School community is enjoying the summer break as much as it can possibly be enjoyed. Even with New York State and Long Island slowly reopening, things are far from what we consider normal. We are hoping you are all in good health and staying safe. Let’s be sure to continue to follow the guidelines from the Department of Health to ensure the safety of our community. 


Congratulations go out again to the Class of 2020! While so much was lost due to the school closure, we are pleased we got the opportunity to celebrate their milestone during our five commencement ceremonies, as well as the various activities we planned to commemorate our seniors. We are still holding off on a decision about the Senior Prom as it is still impossible to host such an event in the foreseeable future. Ultimately the class will be given an opportunity to decide on perhaps an event at a future date, when permitted, and we promise to keep the class posted. 


Underclassmen awards will be mailed home during the month of July. We apologize for the delay, but were determined to acknowledge our students for their achievements and offer our congratulations to the students and their families. They are yet another source of Glen Cove PRIDE!


At the moment the high school staff is working on plans for the upcoming school year. A district wide task force was initiated, including subcommittees to address the specific needs of our elementary and secondary school students. While we are in July, it is still impossible to predict what September will look like.  That said, we are planning on different contingencies, but ultimately all depends on the specific guidance of the State Education Department and the Governor’s Office. Needless to say, we can say with confidence that we all miss our students and are longing for a return to normalcy.


As always, it is a real pleasure serving the Glen Cove community as your high school principal. Please continue to be healthy and safe.



Sincerely,
Antonio Santana
Allen Hudson III

Class of 2020 Graduation

After months of uncertainty surrounding graduations across the country, Glen Cove High School’s Class of 2020 celebrated their graduation on June 26 with an outdoor commencement ceremony marking the end of unique, but memorable school year.

The graduates, who were split into five socially distanced ceremonies, were allowed two invited guests, were spaced six-feet apart from their classmates and were required to wear masks. But it was a small price to pay and did not put a damper on the excitement as students smiled and cheered as they processed onto the football field, while their guests beamed with pride.

Principal Antonio Santana and Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Maria Rianna, spoke to the students reminding them that the world is theirs to conquer and that their dedication, kindness and a positive outlook can take them anywhere they choose.

The senior class valedictorian, Nicole Khaimov, salutatorian Megan Fahey, honorarian Caitronia Greene and class presidents Carina Gigliotti and Victoria Xikas each spoke to their classmates virtually through prerecorded speeches that were livestreamed to the school’s website on graduation day.

Congratulations to the Glen Cove Class of 2020!

Senior Campus Car Parade

Last week, the streets surrounding the high school campus were filled with energetic and optimistic families, friends and community members as they cheered on hundreds of vehicles filled with the students in the graduating class of 2020. Escorted by the Glen Cove fire and police departments, the parade began at Gribbin Elementary and traveled to the high school campus where students received their final yearbook and took photos with district administrators including Superintendent Dr. Maria Rianna, High School Principal Antonio Santana and Assistant Principals Katie Prudente and Allen Hudson III. Glen Cove Mayor Tim Tenke, City Council Members Gaitley Stevenson-Mathews, Marsha Silverman and many teachers from across the district joined the celebration to congratulate the students.

Having adorned their vehicles with balloons, signs, painted windows and even one very large face mask, the students displayed an array of emotions but mostly all smiles, shouts of joy and enthusiastic horn hoking. The Glen Cove High School class of 2020 may have missed out on many traditional celebrations, but there was no lack of pomp and circumstance proving this graduating class is one that will be remembered for resilience, strength and hopefulness.
