A Letter from the Principal

Br. Ken Kalinowski

Dear Pilot Family,
   
Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!


Covid-19 is still with us, and we will follow the directives of the Archdiocese of Detroit. Currently, we are not required to wear masks for the school year. For the most part, classes have been designed to be smaller than pre-Covid levels. We will have extra desks in every classroom for students who feel the need to space themselves out and in the Fall we have a number of boys from the area grammar schools shadowing current students. If you feel that your son should wear a mask, then we will honor that, making sure that he is clean shaven. Please be aware that it would seem Covid protocols are fluid. Rule of thumb: if your son feels ill, he should stay at home and be checked by your family doctor.

Our school year, recovering from the pandemic, will look as normal as possible. We will continue to be cashless in our cafeteria, parents are asked to load their son’s student ID for Tru Foods in the Infinite Campus Parent portal, enabling your son to purchase breakfast and lunch. See Newsletter for details on how to add money to your son's account. If you have any questions regarding the Infinite Campus Parent Portal, please feel free to contact IT Director, Sheryl Anderson - sanderson@delasallehs.com.

ID and Yearbook pictures will be taken during orientation, please make sure that your sons are in dress code, with a proper haircut and clean shaven.  See Summer packet at right for all the details on Dress Code! We will begin insisting again this year that the dress code is adhered to. The ID is to be worn around the neck at all times.

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.
