Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

Jesus, I pray that I answer when you knock at the door of my heart. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Now through the end of the school year, DeLaSalle is piloting a one-way traffic flow in front of the school. School days between 7:30-8:30am and 2:30-3:30pm, vehicles will be directed one-way westbound in front of DeLaSalle toward West Island Avenue. Parents may drop off their children along the one-way route in the morning, but must wait on West Island Avenue to pick up students in the afternoon. Vehicle traffic approaching DeLaSalle from West Island Avenue will not be able to turn right onto DeLaSalle Drive.

Please click here to see a map that shows the one-way traffic flow; click here for a map-that shows designated bus and student drop-off and pick-up locations, and click here for a map that shows the traffic barriers that will block eastbound traffic in front of the school.

The DeLaSalle Cafe is a pre paid lunch account system. As of today, if your account has a negative balance, you will not be able to purchase any items in the Cafe. All students who do have a negative balance will be offered a sack lunch with a cheese sandwich, fruit and milk.

This summer, DeLaSalle will be refreshing the devices for its IslePad one-to-one program with the purchase of new iPad Air devices. As part of this transition, DeLaSalle is offering students the opportunity to purchase their current iPad 2 device for $100. You may place orders now. The last day to place an order is May 15. This purchase price includes the case and charger that is currently assigned to the student. Click here to find the iPad Purchase Form. Devices that are not purchased will need to be returned on the last day of classes. Charges will be incurred for any damage to the device or charger.

Anyone interested in playing girls’ tennis this fall should stop and see Coach Barry and sign up.  Coach Barry will be in the Florance Center during all lunches today.
