In a continued effort to consistently maintain and improve all schools in Glen Cove, administrators and members of the Board of Education came together to break ground on new boys and girls athletic locker rooms at Glen Cove High School. The existing locker rooms were the original rooms from when the school was built in 1962. A complete renovation is planned, including new floors, ceilings, lockers and showers, which were all redesigned with the input of the athletic committee, coaches and Director of Athletics, Health and Physical Education Denise Kiernan. Additionally, there will be a new trainers office and more open space for team meetings, with the entire design featuring school colors to capture a sense of Glen Cove Big Red school pride. Completion of the project is expected in mid-August.

The project is the final component of a May 2009 bond, which also replaced roofs on Deasy Elementary School, Gribbin Elementary School and the high school, and new boilers at Thayer House and Gribbin School. All of the bond projects will enable the buildings to operate more efficiently and save the district money by reducing energy costs over the coming years.

School and construction officials are seen here breaking ground on the new facilities.
