May 2021

It’s hard to imagine that we are well into the fourth quarter of this remarkable school year.  There have been so many mixed emotions with regards to the past few months.  On the one hand we take pride in the manner we have adjusted, implementing virtual learning and adopting so many different digital platforms to promote learning, as well as our continual emphasis on the social and emotional health of our staff and students alike.  We have strived to bring more students back into the building and have begun the process of bringing back student activities that foster school spirit and our positive school culture.  On the other hand, we have managed this in the midst of a pandemic that affected so many of our lives, adversely impacting our ability to provide the traditional high school experience so many of our students long for.  Needless to say, it has been a difficult year.  Fortunately as we approach the school year’s end, positivity rates are continuing to drop and guidelines for schools are changing in our favor, allowing us to schedule more live student events as we return to normalcy. 

During the month of May, Glen Cove High School will administer the first round of College Board AP Examinations, offering our students the opportunity to both challenge the exam in a traditional paper format or digitally.  We encourage students to please utilize the resources available on our high school website, as well as through the College Board.  Please contact Ms. Prudente, our Assistant Principal, with specific questions.  (Please note that there are AP Exams scheduled through the month and during the first week in June.)  We will also be acknowledging and celebrating student achievement on the academic front with our underclassmen and senior awards scheduled for Monday, May 24.  In addition, we are also hosting our Senior Fashion Show on Friday, May 21.  Both the awards ceremonies and fashion show will in fact be live and broadcast via LiveStream, though the attendance at each event will be limited based upon Department of Health Guidelines.  More information will be provided to our high school community as it becomes available, including plans for year-end activities like our prom and graduation ceremony.     

Please join the high school staff in emphasizing that it is extremely important that our students continue working on their courses and that remote students continue participating in distance learning.  Unlike the previous year, numerical grades will be issued this year and it is imperative that students remain up to date with their assignments.  This is especially true for our seniors as we need to ensure they earn their credits, enabling the school to certify their graduation status. Should students have had any difficulties completing the work or if there are any concerns regarding a senior’s graduation status, please reach out to their respective guidance counselor at your earliest convenience and we will work to resolve the concerns.  It is extremely important that we finish out the school year strong with our eyes set not just on this school year, but on our long term goals. 

It should also be noted that Glen Cove High School will only be administering four Regents exams this year; Algebra 1, Living Environment, Earth Science, and English Language Arts as mandated by the New York State Department of Education.   All four exams are optional for our students and every student who earns a passing grade for the corresponding Regents course will receive an ‘exemption’ for that test, meaning it will not have any impact on their graduation status or grade point averages.  Students who have the ‘exemption’ will also be eligible for Advanced Regents Diplomas as long as they earn credit in all the Regents courses required for that designation.  For more information, please visit the Guidance link on our high school website or call your child’s respective guidance counselor.  We will also be providing more specific information regarding Regents exams as it becomes available. 

While progress has been made with regards to reopening the school and providing our students with a more traditional high school experience, we cannot express how much we miss having all our students in our building.  If there is any silver lining, it has been the outpouring of support we have received from the community as we navigated this unique school year.  Our gratitude goes out to everyone who has pitched in, in any form or manner. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.  As always, it is a real pleasure serving the Glen Cove community as your high school principal. 




Sincerely,
Antonio Santana
