Welcome to Our School

February 2020

Dear Parents / Guardians:

We are happy to have our January Regents and midterm examinations behind us as we officially begin the second half of the school year.  This is the time of year when planning for the next school year commences and a huge part of that process is the development of the master schedule.  This year, students selected courses digitally using their ChromeBooks with the guidance of counselors who visited classrooms to assist in the process.  The high school staff is excited to be offering even more options for our students as our academic program continues to expand with new courses like Ted Ed Student Talks, Dystopian and Fantasy Literature and Pilot Ground School.  Glen Cove High School is also offering an increased number of Advanced Placement and dual enrollment courses affording students an opportunity to earn college credit at a reduced cost.  Please refer to our course catalog which is available on our website for more information.

Student course selections for the upcoming school year will become available at the end of February via the Parent Portal once all of the requests have been processed.  Please note that any questions or concerns regarding course selections can be forwarded to your child’s guidance counselor.  Additionally, course availability is contingent upon student enrollment and may be subject to change.   That said, finalized schedules for the 2020–2021 school year will be available in August.

Finally, while we have been spared inclement weather up to this point, I want to remind all of our families to please refer to the district website for information regarding the status of schools, as well as our delayed opening schedule should the need arise.   If we have a delayed opening, please be reminded that first period begins at 9:30 a.m. with shortened periods running throughout the day until dismissal at 2:06 p.m.  In addition to our district website, information regarding the weather, athletic events and general information can be found on our Glen Cove City Schools App which is available for smartphones, as well as on the Parent Portal.

It really is a pleasure and an honor serving the Glen Cove community as your High School Principal.   Should you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at 801-7610, and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter @MrTonySantana.

Sincerely,
Antonio Santana

The Teen Court program recently had its first trial of the year at Glen Cove City Hall. The program serves as an educational experience for students and is operated in conjunction with Judge Richard McCord and Glen Cove City Court. Through the course, students learn about public speaking and the judicial process. In their first trial, Glen Cove High School students Yaire Tolentino, Nicolai Glouchkov, Antonio De Luca and Colin Gallagher served as prosecuting attorneys representing the people of the State of New York while Axelle Labaw, Elijah James and Elana Greim served as defense attorneys for a teen defendant. Sophomore Allyna James acted as judge, and the remaining Teen Court students served as jury members.  Teen Court will have one more trial in January before preparations begin for their second half trials, which will take place in May and June.
