Welcome to Our School

December 2019

Dear Parents / Guardians:

The month of December is typically filled with excitement and anticipation; from our winter concert to the start of winter sports; students and faculty continue to be involved in activities that celebrate student talent and foster student achievement and success.  It is also the time of year in which students participate in various community service events such as our Holiday Gift and Food Drive.  All good things! 

As we quickly approach the midpoint of the second marking period, we want to encourage parents to take advantage of the opportunity to speak to your child’s teachers during Parent/Teacher Conferences on Thursday, December 5th, 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 3 p.m.   Again, it is imperative that parents and guardians maintain open communication with their child’s teacher to enhance their opportunities for success. 

I also want to encourage parents to please “opt in” to our automated calling service.  An orange form entitled School Messenger Notice which is used for this purpose was mailed home with the December Newsletter.  In an effort to better communicate with parents, we would like to use School Messenger to conduct automated calls and emails to announce upcoming events at the high school.  In order for this to happen, families need to “opt in” for this service as indicated at the bottom of the School Messenger form mailed home and posted on this website. Please select Yes, the above numbers can be used to contact me for other purposes if you are interested in receiving information regarding upcoming school events. The purpose again is to have the ability to inform families about our concerts, shows, functions, and assembly programs. 

Speaking of upcoming high school events, we are hoping parents and community members come out to our Winter Festival of Performing Arts on Thursday, December 19th, starting at 6:30 p.m.  Come see our various music ensembles perform, including our Select Chorale who have been invited back to St. Patrick’s Cathedral for a special holiday performance on Friday, December 20th.   We are very proud of all our talented students. 

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 enclosed information describing our “delayed opening” and “school closure” procedures.

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 and a prosperous new year.  And don’t forget to follow me on Twitter @MrTonySantana.
