This fun evening, Wednesday, September 12, 6:00 - 8:30pm allows parents and guardians to walk through an abbreviated version of their child's school day. After a short welcome from DeLaSalle Administration, parents visit each classroom to meet the teacher and hear about the particulars of each course. Tasty treats are served during "lunch" time!
For a student to purchase lunch or breakfast at DeLaSalle, families must deposit money into a cafeteria account. Starting in the 2012 - 2013 school year, families will be able to make deposits through the Islander Net Community page. Please check back soon for more information about how the program will work.
Families can add money to their account by depositing cash or a check with the Business Office.
Tuition, fees, and expenses can add up quickly. To assist families in meeting their high school financial needs, DeLaSalle offers the Islander Foundation. Through the Foundation, parents and students work at various local arena and stadium concession stands. The Foundation is paid by the arena venue. DeLaSalle workers may then apply to the Foundation for grants to assist with school expenses such as tuition, graduation fees, or prom tickets. Please visit the Islander Foundation webpage to learn more.
In addition to the iPad issued to each student at an Islander Net Community orientation, each teacher and course may have specific requests for school supplies. Students will hear about this on the first day of classes. Most students will still need a few notebooks, pens and pencils, folders, and a good backpack for carrying items to and from school each day.
Note, this year the School Store will again sell draw-string bookbags that are the only approved bag for carrying items during the school day.
School busing is available to all students. Students who live in Minneapolis do not need to request service from Monarch Bus Company. Families will automatically receive route information directly from Monarch. DeLaSalle-owned buses and vans will service St. Paul and suburban routes to eligible families who have completed the DeLaSalle Direct Service Busing Request form. Route information will come from DeLaSalle.
