Message from Principal Peggy St. John regarding 9:30 AM start time:
De La Salle High School will have a delayed start for students tomorrow (Thursday) to allow our Westbank, Metairie, and other students travelling some distance a chance to arrive safely to school. Students should plan to arrive between 9:15 and 9:30 but “D” period will begin at 9:30am. We will have a special schedule with reduced time for each class and one-lunch period. Faculty and staff will be reporting at regular time (7am) and will be available for supervision if you need to drop your student off at an earlier time. These students should report to the cafeteria. Breakfast will be available for students until classes start. Our number one priority is your safety. Please know that any student delayed because of road conditions will receive an excused tardy/absence. Please be safe!
