March 2021

It is hard to imagine that we are approaching the Friday, March 13th 2020 anniversary of our high school’s last day of in-person instruction for all students, and the last day Glen Cove High School operated with a sense of normalcy. Since then, we have endured so much in terms of not only the adverse effects the pandemic has had on people in our community, but in terms of all of the civil and political unrest, natural calamities, and loss of all the things we cherished and perhaps took for granted. Even in the best of circumstances, no one can deny that the past year has taken a toll on our social and emotional well-being. It is our expectation that given the increased availability of vaccines and the trend of dropping positivity rates, things will slowly begin to get back to at least some semblance of normalcy.

Glen Cove High School is committed to making this happen by virtue of first increasing the number of students who will be attending in-person instruction. We have currently invited our seniors back and have been looking at options moving forward. The goal is to ultimately have all of our students return to the school building prior to the end of the year and potentially before the start of the fourth quarter. To accomplish this, we would have to practice social distancing to the greatest extent possible, though maintaining six feet may not be possible in all circumstances. What we need to emphasize is mask wearing, hand washing, and being mindful of our personal space, again maintaining social distancing to the greatest extent possible. We are also looking to schedule more events for our students, including social and emotional programs that can address student needs as we transition them back to school. We are optimistic that we can make this happen and that we will restore our school’s spirit!

Spirit often begins with school sports and we have really enjoyed bringing back some of our athletic programs. Watching our student athletes compete again, with a limited audience and safety precautions, has really been fantastic. Our emphasis continues to be on community safety and we have been very pleased with the community’s cooperation in terms of our on-site Covid testing for our student athletes. On March 25, Glen Cove High School will also be hosting a Glen Cove Gives Back Charity Talent show to raise funds for a family in need. The event will be Livestreamed in real time with our student performers showcasing their talents live in our school auditorium. We are excited to not only give our students a venue to perform, but to do so for a good cause. This is what our high school is about, coming together for our larger Glen Cove community. Please be on the lookout for more information as the date approaches.

Finally, we are in the process of looking at student course requests for the upcoming school year as we start preliminary preparations for the drafting of our 2021/2022 master schedule. Please be sure to speak to your child about their course requests and academic programs for their next school year.

As always, it is a real pleasure serving the Glen Cove community as its high school principal. Let’s continue to collectively send positive thoughts and prayers into the universe for a return to normalcy and the restoration of our school spirit and PRIDE!



Sincerely,
Antonio Santana
