Class of 2025
Be sure to also be checking the Delta 2023-2024 Prep page on our site for updates for August and the school year!
SCHOOL COMMUNICATION SIGN-UP (IMPORTANT!)
Our main method of communication with students and parents is through Remind. It is an app on your phone that receives notifications, or you can set it up to receive text message notifications or email notifications if you do not have a smartphone. Once you set it up please DO NOT turn off notifications or you will miss important school announcements! :)
BOTH students AND parents should sign up using your full name (we will reject accounts with names we don't recognize). Parents, please type in your name and then put your student's name in parentheses so we can easily connect your accounts. For example, "John Smith (Buddy Smith)." Thank you!

Following our first ever virtual fly-up day, our next virtual event for the Class of 2025 is our Delta Family Night. Due to current conditions these will look a little different than normal this year but we hope the information is helpful and look forward to engaging with you in this year's format.
Step 2: Review all of the documentation below, and print if desired. The following are documents usually handed out at our family events.
COLLEGE CLASS LIST This document shows the current college courses we offer at Delta, which we are continually evaluating and updating to better serve our students.
DELTA GRADING POLICY Delta uses a standards-reference grading model. It is a little strange at first if you have not been assessed in this way, but the end result is that students are based on their understanding of the required learning standards. Final grades do translate to letter grades and colleges are familiar with how grades work at Delta.
DELTA MATH PATHWAYS Delta follows an integrated math program. This document will show you the normal paths students will follow based on their initial math placement. Math placement is based on MS courses, grades, and teacher recommendations.
DELTA DRESS CODE Delta has a slightly more strict dress code than other schools, as we try to model a more professional environment. However, on a normal day you will see students in jeans (non-ripped), and a t-shirt or hoodie.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS We have put together answers to many of the most frequently asked questions for families.
Step 3: We have several medical forms required for all students (and some on an as-needed basis). Please submit this documentation either by dropping it off at the school, sending it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by sending it via mail to Delta High School, 5801 Broadmoor Blvd, Pasco, WA 99301. If sent in the mail please send an email to Mrs. Schirmer to let her know the documents are in the mail and we can be looking for them at the school. Thank you!
LETTER FROM DELTA HS NURSE Information from Kelli Burns-Mitchell, our school nurse.
Additionally, if you need a Medication Authorization Form, Asthma Management Form, Treatment Order Form, or Immunization Exemption Form, please go to our Nurse's webpage.
Step 4: If you have any questions we can answer, please submit at: https://tinyurl.com/classof2025questions. We have an FAQ page on this website and will also answer many of the questions at our information sessions.
Step 5: If you are interested, please attend our Question & Answer session for your district.

Greetings, Delta Class of 2025 (and families)!
We are excited to welcome you to the Delta High School Class of 2025! We are going to begin moving forward with the registration process for entry into Delta for the fall. We are anxious to get you registered, to share information with you, and to get you on campus as soon as we possibly can. Please see details below:
(1) Fly-up Day, April 21st (time TBD): In late April we will be hosting our annual "Fly-up Day" online. This will give new students a chance to interact with some Delta students and also some of their new classmates. There will be a virtual tour, as well. Look for future updates on this website and also in your email inbox.
(2) Family Information Nights: We will be posting our presentation for this event online for you to view at your leisure later in April. We will then hold two virtual Q & A nights on 4/27 and 4/29 at 6:30 pm where you can ask questions to some of our Delta staff. More information on these events will be published on this site in the coming weeks, as well.
(3) Registration: Right now, all students who “won” the lottery were notified and have been accepted into Delta. However, we also need to have you complete several registration items online.
We are anxious to get to see you all and to have you experience the joy of being a part of the Delta Family. If you have any questions for us, I encourage you to send questions to:
Lisa Muir, Counselor email@example.com
Andrew Glodo, Special Education Teacher firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, and we hope you and your families are safe and well!

Questions? Below are answers to questions posted by parents/students. For questions specific to your child please feel free to contact someone at the school directly via email:
General Questions: Corina Schirmer, Administrative Assistant
School Counselor Questions: Lisa Muir, Delta Counselor
Administrative Questions: KC Bennion, Principal or Tania Guaman, Assistant Principal
Health-Related: Kelli Burns-Mitchell, School Nurse
ANSWERS TO YOUR POSTED QUESTIONS:
Does Delta have a cafeteria where students can buy food? Yes! We have a great cafeteria with many lunch options every day.
Can my child walk to his boundary HS and get the bus from there to Delta? Yes! If you live close to your boundary school your child can walk there and then catch the "Delta Shuttle" (it's a school bus). If you do not live close enough to walk you can ride your normal bus to your home high school and then jump on the Delta Shuttle. (RSD students also have the option of a free transit pass which many students enjoy.)
What are the school hours the students will attend? School begins at 8:30 am and ends at 3:00 pm. We are about half an hour later than most of the large high schools (for transportation reasons).
