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

Lord, you have brought me to the beginning of a new day. As the world is renewed fresh and clean, so I ask you to renew my heart with your strength and purpose. Amen

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Apple will be releasing a software update for the iPad called iOS 11. Students should NOT update their iPad with the new operating system until DeLaSalle’s technology team has tested school apps for iOS 11 compatibility and functionality in the school environment so we can transition smoothly to the new software. Please ignore any iOS 11 software update notifications or prompts that appear on your iPad until further notice from DeLaSalle. Students who update to iOS 11 before given permission will have restrictions placed on their device and all personal apps will be deleted for the remainder of the semester.
