May God give you…
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever

In the news…

There is no school today for students because faculty and staff are participating in a full day of professional development as we prepare to transition to an online school.

Following today’s professional development, DeLaSalle will begin online instruction tomorrow with students.

For each of your classes, you will join a Google Hangout Meet with your teacher for a live session with your classmates. Each teacher will post the Meet link on each course’s homepage. When joining the Google Meet, you should have your microphone muted. If you would like to speak, we ask that you use the built-in chat messaging to request to unmute. This will assist your teacher in facilitating the class, and give you and your fellow students the best learning experience possible.

Students will be meeting with their teacher and classmates at specific times and will have responsibilities to engage in the class, as students would if they were meeting with their teacher face-to-face.  Attendance will be taken during class. If a student is not in attendance without an excuse, that will be considered a skip and will be handled by the deans. All online interaction is an extension of the physical classroom, and expectations of students’ behavior online is the same as what we would expect in the classroom.

Tomorrow, students will attend all of their classes. On Wednesday, our rotating schedule beings. Please see DeLaSalle’s schedule for March 16-20 for more details.

Tech support will be available by emailing or by calling 612.676.7678. When leaving a voicemail, please remember to include your name, a number at which you can be reached, and a brief overview of your question. Additionally, the Islanders Course has a new button on its home page, and we will house tips and reminders that will help you during Online School.

Several different applications will be pushed out to your iPad, including but not limited to: Google Meet, Flipgrid, Ed Puzzle, Genius Scan, and Khan Academy. If there is not enough space on your device, you must delete personal apps/photos and videos to make room for these school apps. Students should not delete any of these apps as you will be using them during DeLaSalle Online School.

The Tech Department will address any student issues as soon as possible, but please be patient as we work to support all students in having a successful online school experience.

In the interest of everyone’s safety, students are not permitted on campus unless cleared by an administrator. Students who need to come to campus to pick up an item must reach out to the Dean of Students Office by emailing or by calling the office number at 612-676-7661 or 612-676-7667.

All student activities are postponed until further notice. This includes the scheduled performances of the spring musical “Catch Me If You Can.”

We are finalizing plans to provide food to students who qualify for free and reduced meals and are planning to deliver meals to students while DeLaSalle Online School is in session

Students and family members participating in the free and reduced program will receive an email detailing the delivery schedule and confirming their address. All questions regarding meal delivery should be directed to Pam Beckman, Director of Food Service at 612.676.7658 or
