Welcome To Our School

The Eugene J. Gribbin Primary School was built in 1966. Our school was named after Mr. Gribbin, a former principal at Glen Cove High School as well as a Superintendent for the district in 1941. Mr. Gribbin's name was synonymous with education in Glen Cove for many years.

Currently Gribbin School houses 399 students in grades k-2.

The entire staff is dedicated to educating and nurturing the whole child. We strive for a safe and secure environment where every child is encouraged to excel.

"The lesson you teach today is not confined to the walls of the classroom. Once it is implanted in the heart and mind of a child it can change the world".

First-Graders Study Sea Turtles

Gribbin first-graders recently completed a shared research project on sea turtles.

As part of the project, the students read nonfiction books, watched videos and used Internet sources to obtain information on sea turtles. Students then recorded the information in research packets. Once their research was complete, the children had to form a written opinion about sea turtles.

The research project kicked off the school’s Adopt an Animal Project. The project, which begins in mid-May, will focus on creating awareness for threatened and endangered species, while raising money to aid in research for their protection and care. The funds raised will be donated to the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation.

Operation Safe Child

Gribbin students took part in Operation Safe Child, thanks to a collaborative effort between the Nassau County District Attorney’s office and the Glen Cove Police Department.
The program, which collects vital information on students and incorporates it on an identification card, can be used to aid parents and law enforcement officials in the event of an emergency. Students had their photographs, fingerprints, height and weight taken by members of the Glen Cove Police Department.  That information, along with the child’s hair color, date of birth and gender, are stored in a database in Albany that can be accessed within minutes all over the country.
Gribbin Principal Francine Santoro said the school has participated in Operation Safe Child for years because the safety of the school’s children is paramount.
