Important Senior Information

Voter Registration Drive

In order for this voter registration drive to be student run, we need student volunteers!

We will be having the Lancaster County Chief Executive Commissioner coming to LNE on April 12th during PLC time to train any students that would like to volunteer some of their time to run the voter registration drive and get their peers registered to vote. Those students who get trained will help run the LNE Voter Registration table on April 13th during the school day. For more information, visit with Mr. Nevarez.

Cap & Gown Orders

Northeast works with Signature Graduation to provide you with graduation announcements and the ordering of caps and gowns. If you order apparel on the website, your apparel should arrive within two weeks of your ordering date. Otherwise, you will receive your other products sometime later in the year when all items are available to ship out. Your orders will be sent directly to the address you choose. Please visit https://signaturegraduation.com/ for more information.

Free & Reduced/Fee Waiver Cap and Gown Information

If you qualify for Free & Reduced lunch, please see Mrs. Ourada in the Main office to ask about the fee waiver process to get a cap and gown at no cost.

If you place an order through the online ordering system with Signature Graduation BEFORE you submit a fee waiver, you will not be able to get your money back.

Graduation

For your planning purposes, the LNE Class of 2022 will graduate at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Saturday, May 28th, 2022 at 3:30 p.m. We look forward to celebrating your student’s final year at Lincoln Northeast!

Senior Fines/Fees

Prom is fast approaching and students who have outstanding fines and fees will not be able to purchase tickets from Prom. We encourage all students to check their fines/fees and get them paid or return overdue materials before tickets go on sale in April.

Weekly Announcements

State ACT Testing for Juniors

All juniors will take the ACT Test for the Nebraska State Assessment on Tuesday, April 5th, 2022. This test will be paid for by the district and students will register for the test at the school about 2 weeks before testing begins.

Testing begins at 8:00 a.m. Students are asked to bring a photo ID (student ID), #2 pencil and a calculator. Please do NOT bring electronic devices (cell phone, ipod, smartwatch, etc). Food, drinks, and electronic devices are not allowed in the classroom.

LNE Prom Updates

  • LNE Juniors and Seniors are invited and are allowed 1 guest/date per person. Students will register their guest/date with LNE when they purchase their tickets. Guests must be in high school or be under 21 to attend.
  • All fines and fees must be paid or a plan must be in place prior to ticket purchase. A fines/fees letter will be sent to any students with outstanding fines/fees at the beginning of this month. We encourage all students and parents to check their student’s fines and fees through Parentvue prior to the week of ticket sales to ensure they have addressed any issues. If you need to make a payment plan, please call the Main Office and we will put you in touch with your student’s administrator. If you already have a fee waiver plan or previous payment plan in place and have no other fines or fees your student WILL be able to purchase a ticket.
  • Prom tickets are $20 and will be sold during lunch and after school beginning Friday, April 1st. Sales will end on Thursday, April 7th.

StudentVue Fines/Fees

Great news! Students can now pay outstanding Synergy fees from StudentVUE! The students can log into StudentVUE, click on the Fee tab on the left, and then click the blue Pay Fees button at the top. That will open a new window to MySchoolBucks, where they will be able to enter payment information to pay for their fees. Functionality has not changed for parents, this is just newly added access for students.
