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.

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
