Welcome to Our School

Dear Parents / Guardians:

The month of December is typically filled with excitement and anticipation, whether it’s our winter concerts and Masquers production, or the start of winter sports and parent teacher conferences, our students and faculty are involved in a multitude of activities as we approach our holiday break.

We are quickly approaching the midpoint of the second marking period, so we encourage our parents to please take advantage of the opportunity to speak to your child’s teachers during Parent / Teacher Conferences on Thursday, December 8th, from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the high School. If you haven’t done so already, please log on to to select an appointment time or you can call the school at 801-7610, during office hours from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.  Again, it is imperative that parents and guardians maintain open communication with the children’s teacher to enhance their opportunities for success.

I am hoping parents and community members come out to the Masquers Fall Production of Waiting in the Wings on Friday, December 9 and Saturday, December 10 at 8:00 p.m., as well as our Winter Festival of Performing Arts on Wednesday, December 21st, starting at 7:30 p.m. Both will be an entertaining display of our student’s talents, so please come out to support.

Finally, while we love the holiday season and all those good things that come with it, it is also the time of year we need to start thinking about inclement weather.  Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the high school’s “delayed opening” and “school closure” procedures both of which are located on this website.

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 fantastic and joyful holiday season.

Students Honored at Glen Cove BOE Meeting

The Board of Education honored Glen Cove High School’s varsity boys soccer team and a high school senior who completed his Eagle Scout Service Project during its Nov. 28 meeting.

Superintendent Dr. Maria Rianna and Athletic Director Denise Kiernan expressed their pride in the soccer team members, who were named Long Island Co-champions and Nassau County Class A Champions, on their outstanding season.

“I am so proud of our team and our spectators,” Dr. Rianna said. “Other districts have said that the level of play on the field was comparable to the World Cup. You are a talented, wonderful group of individuals who have really played with honor, respect and dignity throughout the season.”

“I remember getting on the bus and speaking to you about the word ‘experience,’” Kiernan said to the players. “Do you remember that? No matter what happens in high school athletics it’s about the experience that you will remember best and this experience has provided the Glen Cove community, staff, students and yourselves with a memory that will last a lifetime.”

Also acknowledged was Glen Cove senior AJ Perfetti. AJ raised money to purchase and assist in the installation of new basketball hoops for Finley Middle School’s blacktop as part of his Eagle Scout Service Project.

Finley Middle School Principal Nelson Iocolano expressed his gratitude to AJ, as well as members of Troop 72, who helped with the installation.
“The students were using them within minutes of being installed,” Finley Middle School Principal Nelson Iocolano said of the new hoops. “This is something that will benefit the Glen Cove school community for many years to come. Thank you.”     


Girls Varsity Soccer Team Honored at County Dinner

Members of the Glen Cove girls varsity soccer team were honored at the Nassau County Girls Soccer Coaches Association Dinner at the Crest Hollow County Club on Nov. 28.  

The team was honored with a plaque for being named Co-conference Champions. Individual honors went to Delilah Perez, who achieved All-County honors; Jaynise Espinal who received All-Class honors for her defense as a goalie; Lucy Costello, who received All-Conference honors for her work as a sweeper and Alyssa Zangari who was honored with the Academic Scholar Award.

It was a great night overall for the girls soccer team. Congratulations on a great season!

High School Athletes Share Life Skills with Finley Students

As part of the SALT training, students participated in preplanned activities that focused on communication skills. The goal of SALT is to promote dedication, desire, discipline and good citizenship in student athletes. Three training sessions will take place throughout the school year for the students including Life Skills, Bullying and Drugs and Alcohol.

Glen Cove Hosts Annual International Night


The district held its third annual International Night at Glen Cove High School on Nov. 15.

The evening began in the auditorium where Monica Chavez, English as a new language coordinator, gave an introduction in both Spanish and English to those in attendance. Following introductions, the crowd was treated to student performances, which included piano music, the recitation of poetry, dancing and passages shared about their immigration experiences. The dance group Herederos and Salseritas from Alianza Latina performed some typical Colombian dances.  

The evening continued in the school’s gallery where representatives from 11 community-based organizations provided information to families about their resources and services. Student translators were available to help the non-English-speaking families. A multicultural dinner was then served in the cafeteria followed by dancing that was greatly enjoyed by everyone.  

The district is pleased to offer this annual educational and fun event for the community.
