Students must in one of the following supervised spaces before or after school if they are not working with a teacher, staff member or coach.

  • The Florance Center: Open before school for students to gather, study and eat breakfast.
  • Library: Open before school and after school until 6pm, Monday-Thursday, and until 5pm on Fridays for quiet study only. No food is allowed in the library at any time.
  • Schulze Learning Lab/D-104: Open before school and after school until 6pm for individual or group study. Food is allowed in D-104 on the side that is closest to the parking lot.

Students are expected to bring their I.D.s to lunch every day. Students will be excused to get their lunch according to I.D. number. If a student does not have an I.D. they will need to wait until all numbers have been called before lining up for lunch. All students will receive new I.D. cards on Thursday after their school picture is taken. If a student loses an I.D. card a new one can be purchased from Mr. Huggar in the Administration Office for $5.

If a student needs to leave the Florance Center during lunch he or she must exchange their student ID at the supervisor table for a hall or library pass. The only exception to this rule is if they are using the bathrooms or drinking fountains outside of the Florance Center or returning to the kitchen for more food or drinks. No pass is needed to leave in these cases. Any student that is in the hallway without a corridor pass will be written up for “No Corridor Pass”.

Please make sure you are sorting your trash into the proper waste sort bins. Any table that has trash left on it after the lunch is over will be required to do work service.

Students should review pages 11-12 of the Student-Parent Handbook to ensure they understand how to properly wear their uniform. Random uniform checks in classes will begin next week and behavioral consequences will be given if a student is out of uniform.

Unless special permission is granted, food or drink, with the exception of water, is not allowed in the classrooms. If you wish to bring water to school it must be in a clear water bottle.

Just a reminder that the Campus “Lasallian” Ministry office is located in the lower level of

We will be joining together as a community for our first all school Mass of the Holy Spirit on Friday, August 25 immediately following 1st period. This Mass is traditionally celebrated as a way to commence a new year together and ask for the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our academics, co-curricular activities, and daily life. Fr. Dale Korogi, pastor at Ascension Parish in North Minneapolis, will be our celebrant. Students are asked to leave all personal items, including iPads, secured in their first hour classroom and move to the Florance Center to be seated with your class in a designated location. Please move quickly and quietly and move all the way into the row. No food, drink or gum is allowed during all school assemblies.

John Paul II is looking for some students to help with their Septemberfest. If you are looking to get some Christian service hours see Mr. CJ Hallman in the main office for further details. Septemberfest is Sunday September 10th.
