Daily Digest


In order to control unauthorized use of DeLaSalle’s parking lot during school hours, it is necessary that every car bear a valid parking permit. Permits may be purchased at the beginning of the school year from the Main Office. Twelfth grade students receive priority in purchasing parking permits.

Please visit the Directions & Parking webpage for purchase dates. It is the driver’s responsibility to ensure proper display of the permit. Student parking permits are $150 and are valid for a single school year. Depending upon availability, temporary daily parking permits may be purchased in the Main Office for $2 per day. Unauthorized vehicles may be detained or towed at the owner’s expense. DeLaSalle reserves the right to revoke parking permits for any reason, including but not limited to reckless driving around the school area or at offcampus school events.

Final exams are Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of next week. You can find the exam schedule here. The Final Exams webpage also has information about what time buses will leave at the end of each day and where you should be if you have lunch or a study hall. Good luck to you on your finals!
