The First Days Of School:
The first day of school for students is Wednesday, August 25, 2021. The school day is from 9:15 AM – 4:15 PM each day. It is imperative that students arrive at school on time every day and remain present all day, every day, in order to get maximum instructional time. Students are not permitted to arrive at school on any school day prior to 8:45 AM as there is no adult supervision available.
Our Attendance Secretary, Ms. Neal-Djopa, receives attendance information from teachers and records. This information is in PowerSchool. The day(s) that a student is absent and the reason for the absences is recorded. Please send a note or email to the attendance secretary (email@example.com) when your child is absent for any reason. Students who are absent are required to bring a note from home to their Homeroom teacher or the main office to excuse the absence. Unexcused absences may jeopardize social events and sports participation.

Student Dress Code:
In accordance with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Code of Student Conduct Handbook, the following dress code for students at Northeast has been established. This dress code is to be followed anytime a student is on school property:
For health and safety reasons, students are required to wear closed toe and closed heel shoes at all times.
All clothing must be worn in an appropriate and tasteful manner as originally intended by the designer. For example, pants worn below the waist or showing clothing beneath the main outerwear is a violation. Undergarments should not be observed at any time. Belts, if worn, must be worn around the waistband; shirts or headbands will not be worn around the neck; suspenders or overalls will not be worn with straps down; shirts must be buttoned.
Abusive, suggestive, or profane language, symbols of illegal drugs or alcohol, or any other words, symbols or slogans that disrupt the learning environment may not be worn on clothing or jewelry.
Shorts AND skirts must be at least fingertip length even IF leggings/tights are worn.
If jeans have holes, holes must be below fingertip length. Leggings may be worn underneath. No skin may show through above fingertip length.
Hats will not be allowed at school unless it is a sponsored school event. Hoods are to remain down in the building. Hoods on clothing may be worn during outdoor activities.
Students who do not follow dress code:
Phone call home: *Parents are required to bring a change of clothing so that students meet expectations of the Dress Code.
Students will remain in ISS until parents are able to bring a change of clothing. Repeat offenders may have additional consequences
Please see attached document for discipline policy. Northeast Middle School Discipline Policy.docx.
Within the first two weeks of school, students will be able to rent a locker from their Homeroom teacher. The cost is $4.00. Students must provide their own combination lock. Students are not able to share lockers.
Per state regulations, students participate in Healthy-Active-Child, “HAC”, each day either before or after lunch.
Detailed information will come home throughout the year for Fall Pictures, Spring Pictures, and Sports Team Pictures.
Northeast students and parents are encouraged to join the PTSA. The membership dues are $6.00 per person. The PTSA at Northeast has developed a tradition of supporting the total school program. We encourage 100% participation. Visit our PTSA Tab for more information on how to support our school!
School accident insurance is required for all students participating in middle school athletics, unless a parent signs a waiver indicating you already have adequate family coverage. This insurance fee for other students is optional, but strongly recommended. A brochure will be sent home with your child describing the insurance coverage. If you decide to purchase insurance, checks are to be made directly to the insurance company.
Transportation /Bus Information:
During the week prior to school opening, you will receive information regarding your scheduled bus stop, time, and location. Students should be at their bus stop at least fifteen (15) minutes before their scheduled time. More than one bus may come through your area. Make sure your child boards his/her assigned bus. If you have questions, please call the school and ask for Barbetta Collareta.
In order to maintain the privilege of riding a bus to Northeast Middle School, students must exhibit excellent behavior on our buses from the first day of school to the last. Violations of the expectations/guidelines may result in a student being suspended from school. Parents who bring students to school should do so after 8:45 AM in order to ensure proper supervision. Please note that students are not permitted to ride another bus other than their assigned bus.
