Ensuring the Health and Safety of Our Children

On Tuesday, Oct. 22, from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Glen Cove High School and Connolly Elementary School, Glen Cove CSD community residents will have an opportunity to vote on two separate bond propositions that would support critical and essential repairs, renovations and infrastructure projects to ensure the health and safety of all students.

Prior to the bond vote, the board of education and administration hosted several community presentations, building tours and a community bond forum to ensure all residents have the facts needed to make an informed decision on Tuesday, Oct. 22.  In addition, information regarding the building tours and a bond voter guide were sent to all Glen Cove CSD residents. 

Voters will have the opportunity to vote on two separate propositions. Proposition No. 1 would support critical needs, while Proposition No. 2 would support essential needs.
