De La Salle will continue to welcome students to campus for in-person learning while adhering to all safety protocols that are in place. Students who are at home due to exposure, illness, or risk, will be able to join classes virtually.

A Letter from the Principal

Br. Ken Kalinowski

De La Salle Collegiate Families,

Welcome to the De La Salle Collegiate COVID-19 dashboard. On this page we will post updated information regarding COVID-19 and its effect on our school. To this point we have been very fortunate to hold in-person learning for our students. We ask that all of our students and families remember to "mask-up" and maintain appropriate social distance so we can continue to provide a high quality education in our building on a daily basis. 

Your son’s health is our top priority. We will keep you updated with any information that we receive. Please know that our school has followed all safety guidelines and will continue to do so.

St. John Baptiste de La Salle, Pray for Us!

Live Jesus In Our Hearts! Forever! 

Brother Ken Kalinowski, FSC '84 
Principal

Thank you for your cooperation and assistance

This is a living document. It’s not set in stone, and will likely need to be updated as circumstances change. Our goal is to provide a roadmap – albeit not full proof – that supports the continuation of in-person learning at De La Salle Collegiate.

We worked diligently to prepare our Return to School Roadmap, and have been reassured by the Macomb County Health Department, the protocols that are now in place are working and will continue to safely provide our students with the highest-caliber learning environment. As we have learned since March, the circumstances and responses to the COVID-19 public health emergency are regularly changing. This could mean at some point our measures are not sufficient and would then require a transition to temporary distance-learning.

This roadmap will be updated as regularly with guidance from the State of Michigan, the Archdiocese of Detroit, and other applicable sources. This roadmap is not a substitute for professional medical advice or consultation or guidance offered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Archdiocese of Detroit, the State of Michigan, or other government sources. It is important that we all act responsibly to combat the virus, protect our fellow De La Salle community members, and ensure the best possible learning environment for our students.

We understand that our parents and students may have questions and concerns as we navigate new circumstances together. We want to hear those questions and concerns and address them promptly. Please reach out to the following contacts:

Health Concerns and Virus Exposure: Ms. Nicole Zarucki
Academics: Mr. Chris Dean
Athletics: Mr. Dan Rohn
Campus Ministry: Mr. John Berlin

Under these new and challenging circumstances, De La Salle Collegiate remains committed to fostering an environment where each student can develop his faith, character, intellect, and morality. Thank you for your cooperation and assistance.

OUR MISSION

De La Salle Collegiate is dedicated to the Lasallian Catholic education of its diverse students, including the poor and disadvantaged. We are a college-preparatory school inspired by the spirit and tradition of St. John Baptist de La Salle, where learning takes place in the presence of God. Each student is encouraged to develop his faith, character, intellect, and morality.

This mission is embodied in the school's motto: Builders of Boys. Makers of Men. 

Derived from the Five Core Principles of Lasallian Schools (Quality Education, Inclusive Community, Concern for the Poor/Social Justice, Respect, Faith), these four terms, when used together, make up our DNA that is specifically us.
