Dear High School Students and Families:

We are pleased to report that despite some trepidation, the start of this very unique school year is off to as smooth a start as we could have hoped for. Sure we have had some glitches with the technology and connectivity issues, but we are optimistic at the prospect of a productive year and determined to provide as best an educational experience as possible. We have also been pleased with our students who have been following the Virtual Bell Schedule and participating in remote learning, this is no easy feat for teenagers and they should be given their due credit, along with their families who have been supportive.

We also want to encourage parents and guardians to log onto the Parent Portal to monitor student progress, grades, and attendance. That being said, please note that we have new attendance codes you should be aware of: ‘V’ indicates that a students was present virtually; ‘VL’ indicates that a student arrived late to their virtual classroom; ‘VLE’ indicates that a student logged onto the virtual classroom, but left early or failed to engage; and ‘TI’ indicates that the student had technical issues and that is considered an excused absence from the virtual classroom. Please have students email their respective teachers in real time should they have difficulties with their technology. It should also be noted that if a student is scheduled to be in the building, but participates remotely instead, they will be issued the ‘V’ which is a present code, however, parents / guardians may still get an automated call indicating they were absent from the building. We are working on a solution to this and appreciate your patience and understanding while the issue is being resolved.

Glen Cove High School is running a handful of clubs virtually for the start of the year, including DECA, National Honor Society, Rho Kappa (Social Studies Honor Society), Mu Alpha Theta (Math Honor Society), Tri-Music Honor Society, Student Senate, Yearbook Club, Knightly News and the Senior, Junior, Sophomore & Freshman Class officers. We hope to run more clubs as the year progresses, including restarting our driver education program as soon as we can and we will keep the community posted.

Finally, it would be disingenuous to say that our entire staff does not miss traditional school and wishes and hopes for a return to normalcy as soon as possible. While we are satisfied that we are taking every precaution to keep our entire high school community safe, school is simply not the same. We miss our student’s spirit and energy, especially during the fall when we are all so excited about the start of the school year, fall sports and all of the events that are typically scheduled in the fall.

As always, it is a real pleasure to serve the Glen Cove Community as its high school principal. Please stay safe and healthy and reach out should you have any questions and concerns.
