News & Announcements

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,

Omar Crowder


NEHS will have our own Virtual Graduation on June 10th! Stay Tuned for Details!

Greetings Viking Family,

It is with a heavy heart that I send these closing updates regarding our graduating seniors for the Class of 2020. Every year, our faculty and staff take great pride in making sure that our senior activities such as Prom and Graduation are memorable events for all; we share in your disappointment and frustration in not being able to hold these events this year.

There are several items that need to be addressed and we believe this communication will answer some of your most pertinent questions.

The School District of Philadelphia has allowed us to distribute caps and gowns at Northeast High School during a very specific window of time. Students will visit the school by appointment only June 6th and 8th. Students will pick up caps and gowns according to their last name from 8am to 1:45pm. Check student emails for appointment times.

June 6th last names beginning with A-S

June 8th last names beginning with T-Z

Grades close on June 4th for seniors. Shortly after, The School District will mail the High School Diplomas to each student.  The school district will be hosting a city wide virtual graduation on June 9 at 11 am, details were shared via student emails.  Northeast High School will be hosting our own virtual graduation on June 10, details to follow.

The yearbook company is experiencing delays due to the Coronavirus Pandemic so we are unsure of the exact arrival date for yearbooks, but we are hopeful for the end of June. We will certainly  share this information as soon as we know something. Hopefully you will be able to pick yearbooks up at a later date. Mailing yearbooks is only a back up plan due to the cost of postage.

Refunds from Prom, trips, etc. will be issued upon the reopening of schools.  If students owe money to the school, the school will subtract any monies owed from any refund (prom, trip, dues) owed to the student.

Thank you all for being so patient and flexible. We are glad that students have completed high school and look forward to helping in any way possible as they transition to bigger and better things.

Best Wishes,

Omar Crowder



Dear Parent/Guardian(s):

The federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 provides a benefit called the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) to families of school-aged children who would have otherwise received free or reduced-priced meals if it were not for school closures.

This means all district students are eligible to receive the P-EBT benefit of approximately $365   per student. For more information on how to receive this benefit visit the school district’s https://www.philasd.org/studentplacement/pebt/. We must have a current address in order to provide P-EBT benefits.

The following options for updating your address are below:

Option #1:
Please follow the steps listed on Philadelphia School District website: https://www.philasd.org/studentplacement/pebt/

If you are experiencing difficulty with logging into the School District’s website you are welcome to use our Northeast P-EBT Form to change your address here: https://forms.gle/A25WJsRQMbvF4A3d7

Option #3:
If you do not have access to wifi/internet services please call us at (267) 255-2348 stating the first and last name of the parent and student, your address, and your telephone number. You will receive a response within 3 business days.

Our goal is for all of our Northeast High School families to receive this benefit. If you have any additional questions, feel free to email us at northeastPEBTverify@gmail.com 

The deadline for all address changes and updates is Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 3:00pm.

Message from Mr. Crowder

NEHS Students and Families:

I hope this message finds you well.

Starting May 4, teachers will begin providing online instruction that will consist of new material and will be counted toward  3rd marking period grades, which will also be the final marking period of the year.

The School District of Philadelphia’s policy is that students will not be penalized for not completing assignments posted after May 4, however, work completed can boost student grades for the year.  At NEHS, we are committed to providing online education until the last day of school, June 12.  With that said, it is our expectation that all students will participate in online learning to the best of their ability.  We understand that this is a trying time for all and we plan to make every effort to support our students in the continuation of their learning while schools are closed.

The schedule for online learning is listed below, teachers will hold office hours during each designated class period, so students, please follow your roster in order to access your teacher during those times.

Instruction may look different for each teacher and subject area, so it is critical that you check in with each of your teacher’s Google Classrooms or other online platforms to locate your assignments and class policies.  Teachers can also be reached by email, their contact information is posted on our website:  nehs.philasd.org

Teacher office hours are designed for direct instruction, checking students’ understanding, providing support, face-to-face interaction via online platforms, answering questions, and monitoring the completion of independent tasks.

Schedule for May 4-June 12

Monday and Wednesday
Advisory    10:00AM – 11:00AM
1st Period  11:00AM – 12:00PM
2nd Period 12:00PM – 1:00PM
3rd Period  1:00PM – 2:00PM

Tuesday and Thursday
4th Period 10:00AM – 11:00AM
5th Period 11:00AM – 12:00PM
6th Period 12:00PM – 1:00PM
7th Period 1:00PM – 2:00PM

11:00AM – 1:00PM – Teacher Directed Office Hours (Please contact your teachers for more information)

As teachers will continue to provide non-graded learning opportunities for kids until May 4, students are encouraged to continue to check their school email accounts and Google Classrooms regularly to stay up-to-date on their studies.

I will be providing information regarding grading and attendance policies in a separate communication.  Please do not hesitate to reach out if I can be of assistance or support:  ocrowder@philasd.org
