Online School – Week of April 27

Online School continues next week with our A/B/A/B schedule format. The “A” day schedule is when classes in periods 1, 2, 3, and 4 meet, while the “B” day schedule is when classes in periods 5, 6, 7, and 8 meet. You can find a summary of our April calendar here. Please note there are no classes on Friday, May 1, as faculty participate in professional development to evaluate their current methods and learn of best practices from one another.

Online School Tech Support and Helpful Tips

Students may receive Online School tech support by emailing studenthelp@delasalle.com 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. You may also find a series of helpful tips and best practices here.

Please Respond to 2020-21 Tuition Agreements by Due Date

In partnership with Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS), DeLaSalle this month sent out 2020-21 tuition and financial aid information to registered students and families. All tuition payments for the next school year will begin in May. Please check your email for the information if you have not already done so. Families with a new incoming student will need to set up a new tuition agreement by their due date. Returning families should check their email for 2020-21 information.

As President Barry Lieske communicated in his April 4 message, we recognize that some of you may be hurting because of changes to your individual family situation in recent days and weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic. We are inviting any family in need of assistance to please let us know.  If your family is affected, please complete a supplemental aid application. We believe in a community response at a time like this and will do everything in our power to respond to what we collectively and individually face in 2020.

Virtual 12th Grade Retreat on Wednesday, April 29

The 12th grade retreat will be held virtually after Online School , from 2:00-3:00pm on Wednesday, April 29. Seniors should check their Islander Apps email in the coming days to find out how to access the retreat and for more information. The retreat will allow seniors to share reflections on their four years as well as recognize their classmates.

Online Math Placement Exam, Parent Meetings for Class of 2024 on May 2

All registered students in the Class of 2024 will take an online math placement exam on Saturday, May 2. This exam had previously been scheduled for Saturday, April 18 as part of our Enrollment Orientation, but we postponed the event because our campus is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Parents are also invited to attend virtual presentations with DeLaSalle staff on May 2 to learn more about our mission and community as well as the school day and resources for success. And, a week later, on Saturday, May 9, DeLaSalle will offer online honors mastery exams for students who wish to test into an advanced level of a science or a modern language. Families should look for a separate communication from the Admissions Office with additional details.

Ask a College Adviser

DeLaSalle college advisers will hold office hours every Tuesday. Students and parents can drop into an open Google Meet to ask and receive answers to questions. You may find a link to the Google Meet in the Guidance section of the Islanders course in Canvas.
