Important Information About Website and PlusPortals
Along with the new Student Information System that has been implemented throughout the Diocese, we have had to update our school website. In doing so, we have moved many of the forms and links that pertain only to our current students and parents, to the PlusPortals. Forms have been categorized and divided into folders under the title of School Links and Forms. Here is the contents of each folder:

School Folder - Academic Calendar, FACTS Tuition, PE Uniform Order Form, Uniforms
Athletics - Registration Packet, Impact Testing
Attendance Forms - College Visit, Family Trip Request
Cafeteria Services - Payment form, Wellness Policy, Lunch Menus, Payment Portal
Guidance Services - Senior Planning Guide, Naviance, Scholarships, TASC Referral Form, Transcript Request
Handbooks/Policies: Commencement Philosophy and Expectations, Dress Codes/Uniform Guidelines, School Handbook
Health Services: Asbestos Letter, Medication Authorization, Dental and Physical Exam Forms, Vaccination Requirements.
Library: Academic Integrity Honor Code, many database and school library resource links.
Spiritual Life: Works of Mercy Opportunities, Totals and Validation Form.
Transportation Services: MD Bus Registration Form, Field Trip Permission Form, Student Parking Contract, Volunteer Driver Form

Thank you in advance for your patience as we make this transition to our new Student Information System.

New Students Lunch Accounts
With our new student information system, the freshmen and transfer students have not gotten student IDs yet, so parents are not able to set up a lunch account online at this time. However, you may send a check or money into school to be placed into your daughter's lunch account using the  Cafeteria Payment Form. Once we get the students their ID numberss, you can then set up your lunch account.

For Monday, Aug. 19, we will treat your student to lunch. The menu is as follows:  Stromboli Peas Potato Chips/Ch Balls Fruit Milk Alt - Hot Dog Sandwich. Students may bring a lunch if they do not wish to eat the school meal.

Refer-A-Friend Tuition Grant
Delone Catholic has recently been advertising a transfer tuition grant for students interested in coming to Delone Catholic in their 10th, 11th or 12th grade year. Click here to listen to the current radio promotion. In conjunction with this opportunity for transfer students, we have a grant opportunity for our current families. It's called the Refer-A-Friend Tuition Grant.

Consider telling a friend about all the wonderful programs and services that Delone Catholic has to offer, and you may be eligible for a $500 Refer-A-Friend Tuition Grant. The details of the grant are as follows:
  1. The $500 tuition grant is awarded to a current school family who refers a prospective student to Delone Catholic who then transfers into 10th, 11th or 12th grade and completes the academic year.
  2. The tuition grant will be applied to the current school family's final tuition payment.
  3. The transfer student must not have been previously enrolled at Delone Catholic.
  4. Only one family per transfer is eligible for the Refer-A-Friend Tuition Grant.
