  • NEWS: School Tax Hike Slashed to .97 Percent

    On April 2, the Glen Cove Board of Education voted 6-1 to adopt the proposed 2001-2002 school budget that will be presented to voters on May 15. The $48,110,279 spending plan is $2.7 million less than the one originally proposed and, provided state aid and the assessed value of property in Glen Cove hold fast, the tentative tax rate is $52.77 per $100. The adopted budget calls for a .97 percent tax increase, a significant drop from the 8.25 percent increase the board initially faced. In a 6-1 vote, the board agreed to bond for the payment of tax certioraris for one year, which contributed to the precipitous drop in the school tax. Without bonding the certs, the tax increase would be 4.47 percent. FULL STORY

  • SPORTS: Glen Cove High School Big Red Sports

    On Saturday, March 31 the Glen Cove Girls Varsity Lacrosse team met the girls from Friends Academy on a very soggy Glen Cove field for a much anticipated and unforgettable game. Luckily the rain stopped, but the field was extremely muddy and chewed up (as the boys lacrosse team had just played, and won, another incredible game in overtime). But thanks to Matt (our groundskeeper), who did an awesome job patching up the field, the game was able to go on as scheduled. FULL STORY
