Monday, January 28, 2019 – Online Learning Day
Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
O merciful God, grant that I may ever perfectly do Your Will in all things. Let it be my ambition to work only for Your honor and glory. Let me rejoice in nothing but what leads to You, nor grieve for anything that leads away from You. In this we ask in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
On today’s calendar…
As a reminder, all out-of-uniform guidelines from the Student-Parent handbook are in effect for Winterfest Week: This means “No yoga pants, halter tops, tank tops, or bare midriffs; no sunglasses; and only knee length shorts and skits will be permitted” at any time during the week. Students in violation of these guidelines will be required to wear a uniform from the loaner closet.
- Today’s Out of Uniform: Class Theme
Students in each class may dress in a specific theme: seniors may wear denim; juniors may wear camouflage, sophomores may wear neon, and freshmen may wear flannel.
- Tomorrow’s Out of Uniform: Character Day
Students can dress up as their favorite character from a movie, book, or TV show.

In today’s news…
- In the case of bad weather, our primary concern is student safety. We ask that students help by dressing appropriately for excessive cold (or heat).
- DeLaSalle’s administrators make all decisions to close school or alter a daily schedule. All decisions are made independently from any public school districts, other private schools, or the governor. Do not rely on the incorrect assumption that we will automatically close because another school/district has made that decision.
- We will communicate any decision to close school by automatically contacting parents directly via voice, text, and/or email message. Click here to learn how you can opt in to receive text message alerts. We will also post messages on the DeLaSalle website and official school social media accounts, including Facebook and Twitter.
- Finally, we will also communicate our decision via local television stations WCCO, KSTP, and KARE. We will also show up on their school closing web sites.
- Should we make the decision to cancel on campus classes, we will declare an online learning day. The capability for collaborative work offered by the Canvas learning management system and our 1:1 technology initiative provide students and faculty an opportunity to engage in online learning and discovery.
- Note that after-school and evening meetings, events, practices or games are not automatically canceled because classes are canceled. Usually they will be, but occasionally those decisions are not entirely in our control, especially if another school’s schedule is involved or weather patterns shift dramatically during the course of a day. Coaches and moderators will communicate this information separately via Canvas.
Thank you for partnering with us whenever we are faced with altering the routines of each day. We make such decisions carefully, with the best interests of our entire community in mind.
