June 2021

This has truly been one of the most remarkable years of my career in education. We adjusted to a new normal that included changing the manner in which we deliver instruction and student support services; we managed ever changing guidelines with regards to the pandemic; and we continually modified our practices to best meet the needs of our students. This is a credit to not only our high school staff, but to our entire high school community who did their part to support our school, our programs, and most importantly - our students.

Final preparations for administering Regents exams and computing final grades are well underway. Please note that the last day of instruction is Wednesday, June 16th for all students. Final exams and projects will be embedded in the fourth quarter and there will be no traditional ‘finals week’ at the high school.

As mandated by the New York State Department of Education, Glen Cove High School will be administering Regents exams in Algebra 1, Living Environment, Earth Science, and English Language Arts (ELA). It should be noted that all four Regents exams are optional and will have no impact on a student’s eligibility for graduation and/or an advanced Regents diploma; nor will they have an impact on a student’s grade point average. Please see the summary of Regents expectations below:
Regents exams are optional for all students. 
Regents exams will not be factored into final grades for any course. 
A student who is failing Algebra 1, Living Environment, Earth Science or English Language Arts (including 11R, 11H, AP Language, and AP Seminar) can potentially earn course credit for the course by passing the corresponding Regents exam. 
All students enrolled in Regents courses will receive an “E” indicating the exemption for their Regents grade, should they earn a passing grade in the course.
Students who opt to take the Regents Exam can decide whether to record their numerical Regents grade, instead of an “E” on their official transcript . Families can make this decision with their counselor next year. 
If your child is enrolled in either Algebra 1, Living Environment, Earth Science, or is a junior, you need to contact the school to indicate whether they are interested in taking the Regents exam for that course. Please indicate your interest by clicking the link below: (Please note that the link is also available on our High School Website or you may also register by calling your child’s guidance counselor.) If you do not intend to have your child sit for the Regents exam, no further action is necessary. 

2021 Regents Registration

It is our expectation that our students will finish out the school year strong. Please be sure that students are not only engaged in their classes, but submitting their assignments to their respective teachers. If you have any questions regarding the Regents exams or your child’s progress, please contact your child’s guidance counselor at your convenience. 

But the end-of-the-year is not only about academics and assessments. Despite the trying school year, we are happy to have scheduled all of our traditional student events, including a Junior Spring Fling, our Senior Fashion Show, Senior Trip to the Mansion, and of course, the Senior Prom! We are also incredibly excited to be hosting a traditional commencement ceremony! Please click the link below to access a schedule of all of our senior events:

Finally, we want to thank the entire Glen Cove High School community for their continued support. Without your encouragement and assistance, our students could not have accomplished all of the wonderful things that made the past year a memorable and successful one. On behalf of the faculty and staff, we wish you all an enjoyable and safe summer break.

Congratulations to the Class of 2021! 

Sincerely,

Antonio Santana
