The LORD is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and of great kindness.
The LORD is good to all
and compassionate toward all his works. Amen

In the news…

Today, during period 6 from 10:00-11:20am, we will gather for our first WIN (What I Need) period. All students should remain in their 5th period class.

During the period 6/WIN, we will gather as a school community for our opening school year Mass of the Holy Spirit. The Mass will be livestreamed from the Main Gym and your teacher will either take your class to the Main Gym or show the livestream in your class. Our school chaplain, Fr. Kevin Kenney ’78, will celebrate the Mass, which is meant to ask for God’s blessing on us as we begin a new school year.

Students who participate in hybrid learning on campus may purchase breakfast and lunch each day. Breakfast will be sold from a mobile cart located behind the Florance Center stage (in the hallway across from the Albers Atrium entrance). Lunch will be sold from a mobile cart near your child’s 3rd or 7th period class (on the first and second floors of the A building, on the second floor of the B building, and in Albers Atrium for students with classes in the D building). Lunch will occur during three different waves between 11:30am-1:30pm – when your child eats depends upon which class they are in and you can find the lunch wave schedule in our Hybrid Model class schedule here.

Students who wish to purchase lunch should complete this form at the beginning of their first class period of the day so we can get an accurate count of how many lunches to serve. A student lunch costs $3.25 and includes a pre-packaged main entree, fruit or vegetable, and milk. You may find the lunch menu each day in The Source. A student’s LunchTime account will be charged according to their eligibility (paid, reduced, or free).

A reminder that a student must have sufficient funds in their LunchTime account in order to purchase food from the DeLaSalle Cafe. Families may deposit money electronically into their child’s LunchTime account (click here for instructions on how to create and manage your LunchTime account). DeLaSalle this year will not accept cash or check payments at the school to prevent the handling of currency. Please contact with questions.

Students who do not wish to purchase a lunch may bring their own cold lunch from home. Microwaves will not be available and we suggest packing the lunch in a lunch bag with an icepack to keep the food cold.

DeLaSalle families may order a supply of healthy breakfast and lunches for the days when their student is not on campus because they are participating via distance learning.

  • Students participating in hybrid learning may purchase a meal kit that contains three breakfasts and three lunches each. Families may use this form to order the meal kits. Orders must be placed by noon on the first day the student attends in-person instruction (Monday or Thursday) and picked up outside the kitchen at the end of the school day on the last day they attend (Tuesday or Friday).
  • Students participating in full distance learning may also purchase a meal kit that contains five breakfasts and five lunches each. Orders should be placed by noon on Thursday for pickup at 3:00pm on Friday. Families may use this form to place the order.

As a reminder, all students will participate in distance learning from home on Wednesday. This will give us time to thoroughly clean the school before the Silver Cohort (those students with last names L-Z) come to school on Thursday. You can find the Google Meet code for your class on the course page in Canvas. The schedule for Wednesday is here:

  • Period 1: 8:30-9:10
  • Period 2: 9:20-10:00
  • Period 3: 10:10-10:50
  • Period 4: 11:00-11:40
  • BREAK: 11:40-12:10
  • Period 5: 12:10 – 12:50
  • Period 7: 1:00-1:40
  • Period 8: 1:50-2:30

All student parking permits for the DeLaSalle parking lot are sold out. DeLaSalle has 40 parking permits available for sale that will enable students to park in the Nicollet Island Pavilion overflow parking lot south of the Hennepin Avenue Bridge. These permits, which are sold in partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, cost $280 for the year. Students who wish to purchase one of these permits should complete this form. Students will receive a link to pay for the permit after successfully completing the form.

Seniors who wish to have their photo included in the school yearbook and in the class composite picture that hangs in the hallway must get a senior picture taken by David Bank Studios before Friday, October 23. A David Bank photographer will come to DeLaSalle this fall to take pictures for free, although the date has not been scheduled. The photographer will take two to three different poses and you will have the option to select which of those poses you would like in the yearbook. You may also schedule a photo session at the studio; sessions start at $35. Families who choose to have pictures at the studio can select which photo to be included in the yearbook.
