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.
August 17 -- First Day of School -- Minimum Day Dismissal at 1:30 (12:30 for kindergarten)

Welcome to the Glen Cove Elementary School Website. We hope that you will find and be able to access useful information about the school. As a reminder, each week we publish a newsletter that all children bring home. This is and will continue to be our primary means of regular communication. We post the content of the Newsletter below each week. The Peachjar feature on the top left hand of this page has flyers from the community that would be of interests to families. Just click on the icon.
Dear Glen Cove Families,
Welcome to what promises to be a great year! Our school consists of students, parents, staff, and community members working together to ensure that EVERY child achieves or exceeds state standards, which prepares our students for college or career readiness. To meet this goal, students are provided with a challenging curriculum and exceptional teachers that promote academic and social growth in a cultural responsive way. We also focus on the development of the whole child through our three school shared values: Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible.
This handbook has been designed to acquaint you with Glen Cove School and to serve as a reference during the school year. Additionally, you will receive a weekly newsletter called the Hawk’s Eye. This will come home on Wednesdays. Glen Cove also has a website with the latest edition of the Hawk’s Eye, calendars, and information about Glen Cove. A copy of this handbook can also be found on the Glen Cove website that is easiest to access through the district website.
I look forward to meeting all of you at Back-to-School Night on Thursday, September 1 @ 7:00 P.M. Should you have questions or concerns of any kind, feel free to call 556-8491. Please keep in mind that it takes a whole community to foster the growth of our students. Please join us in fostering your student’s growth through participation in school events, volunteering during the school day, and becoming a member of the Parent Teacher Association, PTA.
Krystal Points, Principal
