Tuesday, October 27, 2015 – Online Learning Day

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

God, give me the grace to realize my ignorance, admit my mistakes, and recognize my needs. Amen

​Today is an online learning day. Students do not need to physically report to school but should check Canvas, as teachers will share their activity by 9am. You can expect 20-30 minutes of activity for each class. Teachers will be available at various times throughout the day to respond to questions. This online learning day helps us practice how learning will occur should DeLaSalle have to implement an alternative school day in the winter due to inclement weather.

If you are a 9th grader in PE, you can keep your same athletic locker until the end of the semester.
