The three girls, all 16, were arraigned Thursday, although they did not appear in court.
They are all charged with civil rights violations resulting in bodily injury, criminal harassment and disturbing a school assembly. Two also are charged with stalking, and the other is charged with assault with a dangerous weapon.
They were released on their own recognizance but ordered not to have any contact with the family of Phoebe Prince and to appear for booking procedures by next Wednesday.
Phoebe, who had moved from Ireland to South Hadley Massachusetts, with her family, hanged herself in January after enduring what prosecutors described as months of bullying.
Three other teenagers also are charged in the case. Sean Mulveyhill, 17, Kayla Narey, 17, and Austin Renaud, 18, entered not guilty pleas through their attorneys on Tuesday. They also must stay away from the Prince family and are to report to Massachusetts State Police barracks for booking before Friday.
