Hurricane Florence

Family has always been important to each of us, but at no more important a time than the next few days. 
Know that though I’ve been at East a short time, it feels like home and you, like family. 
Be safe, be careful, and stay close to those you love. 
Keep our small school, community and families in your prayers. 

Stay safe Mariners

Chromebook Technology Agreement Form

All students are required to pay a $15 technology fee to cover insurance costs for their school issued chrome book. We are 1:1 at East Carteret and each student is required to use a chrome book for their classes and will receive that device on the first day of school. You must pay that technology fee and compete the agreement form above.

Students may pay those technology fees in the front office. We accept cash or check made payable to East Carteret High School.


Students will pick up their Chromebook from their 4th period class each morning and then report to 1st period before the 8am tardy bell. Students who do not wish to take their chromebook home may leave it in their 4th period class.
