2018-19 Tuition Information Arrives in Early April; Tuition Charges Begin in May

Between April 1-15, DeLaSalle families who have completed the registration for 2018-19, and, if necessary, the financial aid application process, will receive an email with a summary of tuition charges and financial aid grants and/or merit scholarships. Emails will not be sent to families that have not completed the required processes. Please note – the tuition agreements do not yet reflect either the 2018-19 transportation or iPad insurance plan charges. Those charges will be added at a later date and, new families will select their iPad insurance at the April 21 Enrollment Orientation.

Families of new students are asked to respond to our Business Office by following the instructions in the email and on the agreement, selecting a payment option, banking information and electronically signing your acceptance of your agreement. We request a response from all families by Saturday, April 21, as all payment plans for 2018-19 begin in May.  If you are a new family to DeLaSalle and do not receive an email by the 15th, please contact Ron Rice at 612-676-7601.
For returning students (without an additional child to be added to the tuition account), and as part of our continuous enrollment process, you will receive an email showing a summary of tuition and financial aid grants and/or merit scholarships.  TADS will use the same banking or credit card information provided by families for their 2017-18 agreement.  Additionally,TADS will use the same basic payment plan arrangement that families chose for the 2017-18 school year as the payment plan for the 2018-19 school year.  If families need to change any banking or credit card information, their payment plan, or have any other questions, please contact Ron Rice at 612-676-7601 by April 21 to make those changes for the 2018-19 school year.
Returning Families: Please Respond to Transportation Requests, iPad Insurance Plan for 2018-19
Thank you to the many DeLaSalle families who have completed the final step in the continuing enrollment for 2018-19 by returning transportation requests and selecting an iPad insurance plan for next year. If you have not completed the request, please check your email inbox to look for the message or one of several reminders – and for promptly responding to that request as soon as possible.
No Classes April 9 Due to Professional Development

We wish students and families a safe, relaxing Spring Break April 2-9. Please note that classes will resume on Tuesday, April 10, as faculty and staff will participate in professional development on Monday, April 9. Please note, too, that many staff choose to take time off during the break. You may find how to contact an individual staff member through our online Staff Directory. And, we will not publish a “Looking Ahead at DeLaSalle” email blast during spring break; the next edition will be Friday, April 13.

April 9 Parent Association Meeting Canceled

The regularly scheduled Parent Association meeting on Monday, April 9 has been canceled. We made the decision in part because spring break extends through April 9 and there are other opportunities for parents to be involved at DeLaSalle in April. The Parent Association will again recognize staff during the annual Staff Appreciation Day on Thursday, April 26.

On the Road: Sharing Good News with De Alumni and Friends

Islanders are everywhere – and DeLaSalle President Barry Lieske and Advancement staff recently met with alumni and friends in Arizona and Florida to share the many good things happening on the Island. Continue reading
