Students and families, we will be opening our school this week so that students can clean out their lockers and retrieve personal belongings.
On Tuesday, June 16, the building will be open for seniors only to clean out their lockers, return textbooks, uniforms, etc. from 9 am to 1 pm. Refund checks for prom tickets and senior dues will be ready for pick up as well.
On Wednesday, June 17, the building will be open for students in grades 9-11 from 8 am to 2 pm to clean out your lockers, return textbooks and pick up personal belongings.
Please note that staff are not required to be present on either day, so if you have items that you need to retrieve from a specific teacher or staff member, that may need to wait until we re-open in the Fall.
If you are a senior or a student leaving the school district and you borrowed a laptop, please do not bring it back to NEHS. The school district is requiring that you return the laptop to the school district office at 440 North Broad Street or the Fitzpatrick Annex at 11061 Knights Road.

Message from Principal Mr. Crowder:
Students and Families,
I am writing today to acknowledge the peaceful protests that continue to take place in our city and across the country in honor of George Floyd and the many others who have lost their lives due to racism and brutality. I understand the hurt and outrage that many of you feel and I want you to know that I see you and I hear you. I do believe that we can make real change in our country to end racism and bigotry, but it must be done through peaceful and legal means.
Over the last few days we have seen businesses looted and burned, people injured and in some places, people have lost their lives. I understand the pain people are feeling, but I cannot condone or support unlawful actions. I encourage every member of our learning community to have your voice heard in a positive and productive way. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr believed strongly in a civil rights movement based on peaceful, non-violent protest and so do I.
As your principal, I want you to know that I believe Black Lives Matter. I believe that the senseless killing of black men and women needs to stop. I also believe that it is my duty to encourage all Northeast High School students to be safe and have your voices heard in a peaceful and lawful way. Please remember that we are still in the middle of a very dangerous pandemic and if you leave your home, please practice social distancing protocols and please avoid situations deemed dangerous or unlawful.
The staff of Northeast High School are here to support you through this very difficult time. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any member of our staff if you need assistance.
Please be safe and take care,
