From Reverend Lou DelFra, C.S.C.
Dear Lord Jesus, Grant us a greater trust in your saving power in our lives. Hear our prayer especially for those parts of our lives that are in most need of your grace, where it is most difficult for us to believe that you are present. Help us in faith to place all of our lives in your providential hands. Amen.

Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever
Students will have four classes per day, scheduled in one hour blocks. This schedule will be in place through March 27. To get us started, here is the schedule for March 18- 20.
In the news…
Tech support will be available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com 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.”
As we communicated yesterday, DeLaSalle distributed meals to more than 125 students who receive free or reduced meal benefits. If you or someone you know is in need of meal assistance, please contact Barry Lieske. We learned today of free meals being distributed by Minneapolis Public Schools to any student affected by school closure due to the COVID-19 outbreak. You may find more information here.
