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

God, grant that I may never feel lonely in my faith, and help me to let others feel the comfort of Christian community. Amen

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

Apple will be releasing a software update for the iPad called iOS 9. Students should NOT update their iPad with the new operating system until DeLaSalle’s technology team has tested school apps for iOS 9 compatibility and functionality in the school environment so we can transition smoothly to the new software.

Please ignore any iOS 9 software update notifications or prompts that appear on your iPad until further notice from DeLaSalle.

Students who update to iOS 9 before given permission will have restrictions placed on their device and all personal apps will be deleted for the remainder of the semester.

Students are NOT allowed to play major athletic games like football or kickball.

When the first bell rings, students are welcome to go in the First Come First Serve Line. Once the second bell rings, we will stop students from entering the line, and will start calling students to eat by grade level. We want students to hold each other accountable, so please pick up after yourselves and remind your peers to do the same. Make sure to check the lunch line order, which will be posted on the left hand side of B110 (the entrance for the lunch line). This order is not set in stone and will change. Please remember that no food from off-campus sources may be delivered to school unless approved by school administration.
