January 2021

First, we want to wish our Glen Cove High School Community a safe and healthy New Year! The promise of a new year has never been more meaningful and we are certainly hoping that 2021 brings us back to some semblance of normalcy, more students back in our hallways, less fear and anxiety about our collective health, and more of the spirit we are so desperately missing at our school. 

Glen Cove High School is in the constant process of assessing its practices during the pandemic. On Monday, November 9th the high school shifted to a two cohort model to increase the number of days students attended school, all while maintaining Department of Health Guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff. Since then, we have noted that only about a third of the students who are scheduled to report to the school building are actually coming to school. Given the uptick in positive Covid 19 cases, this is certainly understandable. However, there are students who may benefit from attending school five days a week and we are contemplating affording students the opportunity to do so, especially since we are only averaging a total of about twenty percent of our students actually attending school. 

During the month of January, we will be looking at the number of students who plan on participating remotely for the foreseeable future, or at the very least until the fourth quarter of the school year which is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 5, 2021. We are also going to look at the number of students who would be interested in attending school on a full time basis. Based on this information, a determination will be made in terms of what the third quarter will look like and whether or not we will shift to another pattern of attendance for our students. 

It should also be noted that due to the cancellation of the January Regents, Glen Cove High School will not be observing a testing week in January and school will be open for instruction the week of January 18, 2021. Our academic content areas will utilize a variety of assessments to monitor student progress, meaning in some subjects there won’t be any traditional midterms administered.

Finally, the second quarter and first semester of the school year ends on Friday, January 29th. Remember, success this year in school is not just based on simply logging on to class virtually, but on a student’s willingness to be engaged and actively participate on a daily basis. Please contact the school should you have any questions and let’s continue working together to insure our student’s success.

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.
