Dear Glen Cove High School Community,


I am hoping that our high school community is healthy and doing well as we approach the winter months. These have been challenging times for educators as we have been trying to maintain some semblance of a high school education and experience all while trying to manage the health and safety of our students and staff during this global pandemic. As much as we have been very pleased with the manner in which our staff has adapted to our new normal, incorporating new technology and techniques, remote instruction is simply not ideal for so many students. 


As is the case in school districts across New York State, we are very concerned with student performance and their ability to manage remote learning. While students may be logging on to the respective Google Meets, many are not engaged and participating; in other words, they may have checked in, but they are not present during the instructional period. In an effort to increase their engagement and achievement, Glen Cove High School students will be mandated to have their cameras on during remote instruction. Failure to do so will result in the student being marked absent for that instructional period. We are asking that parents and guardians please convey the importance of not only actively engaging in the lesson with cameras on, but to please submit all their work to assure success in the class. 


We are also quickly approaching the midpoint of the second quarter and are encouraging parents to take the opportunity to speak to their child’s teachers during Virtual Parent/Teacher Conferences on Thursday, December 3, from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the high school. If you haven’t done so already, please log on to teacherreacher.com to select an appointment time. Again, it is imperative that parents and guardians maintain open communication with their child’s teacher to enhance their opportunities for success. 


Finally, we are doing our best to keep our school open. To this end, we are really encouraging our high school community to keep adhering to all of the protocols designed to minimize the spread of Covid 19. This becomes especially difficult during the holiday season, but it is important that we keep our community safe. 


As always, it is a real pleasure serving the Glen Cove Community as the High School Principal. I want to take this opportunity to wish all of our Glen Cove families and community members a safe and joyful holiday season and a prosperous new year.


Sincerely,
Antonio Santana
