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

Lead us from death to life, from falsehood to truth.
Lead us from despair to hope, from fear to trust.
Lead us from hate to love, from war to peace.
Let peace fill our heart, our world, our universe.

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 12. Students should NOT update their iPad with the new operating system until DeLaSalle’s technology team has tested school apps for iOS 12 compatibility and functionality in the school environment so we can transition smoothly to the new software. Please ignore any iOS 12 software update notifications or prompts that appear on your iPad until further notice from DeLaSalle. Students who update to iOS 12 before given permission will have restrictions placed on their device and all personal apps will be deleted for the remainder of the semester.
