Welcome the the 2021-22 School Year!!

This is the transcript from Mrs. Boss’s phone call today:
“Good afternoon Eagles, this is Laura Boss, principal of Northeast Middle School. I am so happy to welcome all of you to the beginning of the 2021 – 2022 school year. Homeroom teachers have been reaching out to the parents and students of their advisory classes to introduce themselves and to help the students know where to go Monday morning. We will have signs and multiple adults directing students.
This message will be lengthy, but please remember there will be an email version sent to you.
Our first half-day will be Monday, August 9th. Please remember, breakfast nor lunch will be served on the first ½ day.
Bus riders and car riders will begin to enter the building at 7:00 am. 6th-grade students will go to the gym. 7th and 8th grade will report to their advisory classes listed on their Powerschool schedule. 7th grade will go to the blue hall and 8th grade will go to the blue and gold hall. New students or students without a schedule will report to the Library. Throughout the day, there will be numerous teachers and staff with signs directing our students where to report.
Please make sure your child knows exactly how he or she is getting home. If your student is a bus rider, please encourage him or her to memorize their bus number. Remind your bus rider not to rely on what the driver looks like to identify their bus; the bus number is the most effective way to ensure they are on the correct one. If your child is a car rider in the morning, but a bus rider in the afternoon, please make sure he or she knows the number. If you have not received the message from transportation with that number, you can go to the CMCSS website (parent tab, bus, and zoning) to locate that information.
(Car rider information will be in the next post.)
The first full day of school is August 12. Students will need to bring their backpacks and water. Both breakfast and lunch services will begin this day. Please be on the lookout for a free and reduced lunch application. Although lunches remain free for everyone, we appreciate your support in filling these out. In addition, we will not be utilizing lockers for the 21-22 school year.
We are looking forward to a fabulous first week of school and we look forward to working with you to prepare our students for success! Thank you and enjoy your weekend.”
*NOTE: Teachers have been sending emails, so be sure you are checking your spam folder if you don’t see anything. If you do not receive an email, your child will just need to report to the library first thing Monday and the school counselors will be helping there.
**Please send your student with a folder and paper, something to write with and a bottle of water/water bottle on Monday. They will not need all of their supplies until Monday. It would be great to either print out the above mentioned email or write all the information on a piece of paper in the folder, including bus number.
***Also, please begin encouraging your student to memorize their 6 digit student ID/lunch number (also used in the library). They WILL need to use it this year for lunch. There will be NO a-la-carte items this year. They may purchase milk, but may not charge. They need to have exact change or make a deposit. Also, so that the line goes smoothly, encourage your child to read the menu and make a decision before they get to the serving line. The menus are on a monitor above the serving line door, on the window inside and online.

Car Rider Information 2021-22

Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!
If your child will be a car rider for one day, an occasional day or all year, please read this thoroughly so you are familiar with the procedure. If you have any questions concerning the first half day, please email [email protected] and I will make every effort to answer by Sunday night, Aug 8.
Car Rider times are at 7:00am for drop-off and 10:30am for pick-up on Monday 8/9/2021. Starting Thursday, 8/12/2021, car rider pick-up will begin at 2:10pm. We have more car riders the first ½ day of school than we do any other day of the school year. Please be patient and kind as we manage the increase in traffic. Expect and plan for delays. The forecast is currently predicting a chance of rain for Monday. Please equip your student with an umbrella or raincoat. Unless there is lightning or extreme conditions students will have to stand outside for dismissal. If we have to move inside due to extreme weather, once again, please be patient and plan for delays. Attached to this email is a map and instructions for our car rider procedure (same as last year). Please read and listen to the following instructions for both the morning and afternoon car riders.
For Morning car riders:
-All car rider traffic must enter the campus off of Merriweather Road; traffic that enters off of Trenton will not be able to enter the line if backed-up.
-Cars may line-up in 2 lanes on the new access road beside the Elementary School (the same entrance as last year). If you’ve entered the campus off of Merriweather there will be signs posted to assist you with where to go.
-Cones will be placed at the entrance of the drop-off loop in the mornings. The 2 lane traffic may line-up behind the cones. No cars will be allowed in the loop until the on-duty staff moves cones and motions traffic to enter. Please do not attempt to bypass the line, and drop-off your child in the parking lot. This is a major safety concern given they’ll have to cross two lanes of traffic to get to the sidewalk.
Once all cars in the loop are unloaded, we will dismiss one lane at time until both lanes are out of the loop. Please do not try to exit the loop while we’re still unloading students.
For Afternoon car riders:
-During car rider pick-up, cones will not be placed at the entrance of the loop and cars may pull all the way up in the loop and wait for their student.
-Students will stand outside in the grass area and watch for their ride.
-As you enter the car rider loop to pick-up your child we ask that you pull all the way up (follow the signs) so we can fit the maximum number of cars in the loop. Once you’re parked and staff have given an all-clear for loading, your student can safely walk the sidewalk to your vehicle.
-Similar to morning car riders, once all cars in the loop have been loaded we will dismiss one lane at a time until both lanes have exited the loop. Please do not try to exit the loop while we’re still loading students.
When you arrive please be attentive to staff and the signs they carry. This will make the process much easier, safer, and, hopefully, less time consuming. With your help and patience, we hope to make this process as seamless as possible! We look forward to seeing you Monday morning at 7:00am!
Just some reminders regarding car rider procedures:
• Please remember to enter the car rider line from Merriweather road (See map below). If you try to enter the line from Trenton you may be unable to enter the access road to the car rider loop due to the traffic from Merriweather.
• Once you enter the line on the access road beside the Elementary school, you may line-up in two lanes and enter the car rider loop in two lanes.
• Students should NOT exit or enter their vehicle until all traffic has stopped and the announcement is made for them enter/exit their vehicle.
