Attendance Rules Summary
It is important for parents to understand the rules on attendance. Children can only be absent for three reasons: illness, doctor's appointment, or bereavement for immediate family. If a student is not in school for any other reason, they are marked as truant. Parents must call the school or write a note to verify an absence. It is also a truancy if a child is late by more than 30 minutes or picked up early by more than 30 minutes without a valid reason.
Please do not plan vacations on school days or to extend a weekend. This is not legal. Your child misses school and learns that schoolwork is not important. We very much want to improve our attendance and our student achievement -- both go together.

Holiday Sing-a-Long, Thursday, December 18, 7:00 PM
On Thursday, December 18th, 7:00 PM, in the multi-purpose room, parents and students are invited to a Holiday Season Sing-a-Long. Families are invited to join together and sing secular songs of the season. Songs will include: Jingle Bells, Jingle Bell Rock, Frosty the Snowman, Let It Snow and more.
There is a tradition of families bringing cookies for students to be shared after the singing. Also, so that everyone has room, we will be mostly sitting on the floor. Bring a pad or blanket to sit on for your comfort. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Friday, December 19th is a minimum day with dismissal at 1:00 for all students! Please be on time!
Noon Duty Supervisors Needed!!!!
We very much need additional substitute noon duty supervisors at Glen Cove. This is a great way to be a part of the school and to get experience working with children. Please call the office if you are interested. Applications for positions need to be submitted using the website edjoin.org. We can help you with this process.
The staff wishes everyone a great holiday season and new year. The photo below is by Wilson A. Bentley (1865-1931). Around the turn of the century he took microscope photographs of over 5,000 pictures of snowflakes to prove that no two are alike.

ADA For Last Week 85% -- All Time Low!!!!!!!
We had 387 students absent last week giving us an ADA of 85%! We have 195 truancies largely due to concerns about rain. This is the highest number of absences and truancies in our school history. There were 71 students tardy. Attendance is an area for improvement after the new year.
Spiritwear on Fridays
For school spirit, students are to wear spiritwear T-shirts or our school colors, blue and grey, on Fridays.
In order to register your child at school you must bring your child's birth certificate, shot records, and proof that you reside within our school boundaries. Before the start of the school year, come to the office any time between 8:00 and 3:00. After the start of the year, please avoid coming between 8:45 and 9:30 and 3:30-4:00 as these are very busy times for the office.
