School Board Beefs Up Security at High School
The hiring of two additional security guards was approved by the Glen Cove Board of Education during their Jan. 29 regular meeting. Another two security guards will be hired for the next school year. A request submitted to the board by the head of school district security, Don Schutt, included the hiring of four security guards, the installation of a closed-circuit television system at the high school and CPR/first aid training for all security personnel. The additional guards will be immediately hired thus creating a second level of supervision at the high school and middle school, enabling Mr. Schutt to have coverage when he is called to an emergency in any of the district's buildings.
Former Member Bends School Board's Ear
A long and varied public comment period was rendered at the North Shore school board meeting on Monday, Jan. 29. A long statement was read by Glen Head resident, and former school board member, Bill Mozer about the noise from the Glenwood Landing School bus depot. When in reverse, school buses have a loud warning beep and the noise from this as well as the bus engines themselves is a constant irritant for the homeowners who live near the Glenwood School. It seems that the problem has persisted over the last several months. Mr. Mozer cited times as early as 6:15 a.m. on school days and as late as 11:15 p.m. on weekends when the neighborhood is disturbed by the buses.
