As a reminder, next Monday, November 23 through Wednesday, November 25 are pre-planned, district-wide remote learning days for traditional students. With remote learning, students will not report to the school building as they will access learning via the laptops provided by the district. This week, teachers will communicate with students on how to access lessons. Families who need access to no-cost meals can find information here.
Thanksgiving Break will be Thursday, November 26, and Friday, November 27, and classes will resume on Monday, November 30.
CMCSS students, faculty, staff, and administrators have worked hard to implement the district’s reopening plan and to keep our school buildings open for those families that chose the traditional option. It is going to take the community working together to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in order to keep our buildings open. Please remember, everyone is expected to self-screen prior to entering school property. In addition, students, faculty, and staff should not enter a school building if they are awaiting a COVID-19 test result or if a household member is awaiting a COVID-19 test result unless the household member is being tested routinely for work or surgeries. If you have questions, please review the Back to School/Work Flowchart.
Regarding fan attendance at athletic events, CMCSS is following guidance from TSSAA. All CMCSS facilities have limited seating capacities for all sporting events. Masks are required for all spectators. Families are allowed to sit together, but spectators must remain physically distant whenever possible from all other spectators. CMCSS has the authority to enforce health and safety guidelines for spectators and the right to remove spectators who do not adhere to the guidelines. Additionally, school and district leaders have the authority to prohibit spectators if there are concerns.
The percent of COVID-19 in the community is continuing to rise. Please follow the guidance of our local, state, and national public health experts. Wash your hands frequently, wear a mask when physical distancing cannot be maintained, and stay home if you are sick. The district will continue to do its best to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our schools, but we need everyone to do their part.
Have a safe, happy, and healthy Thanksgiving holiday!
Boys soccer conditioning will start December 1st on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 5:30-7:00. All students must have a completed sports physical, completed cardiac arrest form, and completed concussion form to participate. Please email Coach Weaver ([email protected]) to receive these forms or if you have questions.
On November 2 you received an electronic form from CMCSS regarding the Federal Impact Aid survey. This survey is crucial for our school system to receive federal funding to support school programs. Please take three minutes to complete this survey.
Federal Impact Aid is designed to assist local school districts that have lost property tax revenue due to the presence of tax-exempt Federal property. Federal Impact Aid is set up for school districts where federally owned lands (such as Fort Campbell, government buildings, TVA steam plants, subsidized housing, etc.) are located. Its intent is to help offset the lost property taxes that would have been collected if businesses or privately owned residences were located there instead. Federal Impact Aid does not provide an amount of funding for every military dependent child who is served in our school system.
This survey is sent each year by the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System to collect data about federally connected students. The funding formula that determines how much money a school system will receive hinges on accurate information that is collected on the survey.
It is crucial that parents complete the forms. And the information must be what is accurate on Nov. 2.
All information is confidential and has no effect on personal taxes or on those who live in subsidized housing.
We here at Northeast would like to show thanks and appreciation for those Veterans that have served to protect our homes and values. So, from Northeast High School, we thank you for your service.
Due to Covid, we were unable to hold our usual assembly to recognize and thank those who have served in the military. Please take a few minutes to enjoy this Veteran’s Day Celebration video created by NEHS students and staff.

I am proud to announce that NEHS recently received a special designation from the University of Tennessee – Knoxville, granting specific scholarship opportunities for you to access one of Tennessee’s premier public universities.
The Flagship Scholarship program, provided by Flagship Universities, reaches out across the 50 states. There are only 38 high schools in Tennessee that qualify for this designation, which according to the University of Tennessee – Knoxville, “when combined with other federal, state, and institutional aid, this scholarship covers a student’s tuition and mandatory fees for up to eight (8) semesters.”
The scholarship is automatically granted to students who meet all of the criteria and complete a college admittance application, with no additional application required. Students must be Tennessee residents and U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Students must also be first-time freshmen who enter UT in the fall semester immediately following graduation.
The scholarship does specify that an admission application must be submitted, so make sure you do not miss these deadlines!
