Virtual Backpack Information

December 2014

Dear Parents/Guardian:

The Glen Cove School District, in a continued effort to reduce our carbon footprint, is pleased to announce an enhancement to our website.  We introduced our “Virtual Backpack” on our website which allows us to post flyers that would have normally been sent home in your child’s backpack.  This paper communication is to alert you to this new component of our website and to inform you that we will eventually eliminate paper flyers as we continue our “green” efforts.

This page can be accessed from our main district website at and selecting the “Virtual Backpack” link on the left sidebar.  The flyers will be posted in a .pdf format and can be easily viewed or printed.  The virtual backpack also has an RSS feed for those of you who utilize RSS. [This allows you to subscribe to the Virtual Backpack and receive alerts when new updates are available.]

We hope you enjoy this new added feature to the district website.

Thank you.

Maria L. Rianna
Superintendent of Schools
