Message from the Principal
I would like to welcome you and your child to Northeast Elementary School. Our faculty and staff will positively create a learning environment that fosters student growth in every way. We recognize that in order to do this, we must develop and maintain a strong relationship with parents and community members. We invite you to attend parent conference meetings, PTA meetings, and any functions we have at Northeast Elementary School during or after the regular school day.
Again this year, there will be no printed calendar for the school system. The school calendar can be found online at acpsmd.org. We will continue to send written notices from our school to your home regarding important events being held at our school.
If you choose to bring your child to school for morning arrival, please remember that the doors open at 8:20 AM. Please do not bring your child early and leave him/her unsupervised. Also, student drop-off from 8:20 – 8:30 must be at the carpool loop, so as to not have vehicular traffic interfering with bus traffic.
We are excited to announce that we will be continuing the breakfast program this year through a grant titled Maryland Meals for Achievement. This program enables every student to eat breakfast each morning free of charge. We encourage all students to be here by 8:30 so they may enjoy a hearty breakfast before kicking off the school day.
We will continue to offer school lunch in the cafeteria under the traditional payment system. I encourage you to submit an application for free and reduced-price meals, even if you believe that you will not qualify. If you have not yet filed an application, please contact the school or visit acpsmd.org for an application. We are always available to offer assistance with filling out the form, should you need it.
I look forward to working with you and your child throughout the school year. Thank you in advance for your continued support of our program at Northeast Elementary School. If you have any suggestions as to how we may enhance our program, please feel free to contact us at 301-724-3285.
