Welcome to Delta!
We are disappointed not to be able to host an in-person family night but hope that this Virtual Family Night helps you get acquainted a bit more with Delta's great program and people! We also still hope to hold a campus event at some point this summer for our incoming students, as regulations allow.

Greetings, Delta Class of 2024 (and families)!
Well, this spring has certainly not turned out how anyone planned, but we would like to begin moving forward again with the registration process for our new Deltonians—the class of 2024! 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: This obviously will not be happening with school closed for the remainder of the year. We are hopeful that at some point—maybe even during the summer—we can offer an opportunity for you to visit the school and will communicate this information to you if it becomes a reality.
(2) Family Information Nights: This night will not happen in person, but we have plans to put together our presentation as a video and to get it out to our incoming students and families. Please be looking for information about this in the next couple of weeks.
(3) Registration: Right now, all students who “won” the lottery were notified are accepted into Delta. However, we also need to have your registration paperwork that was sent to you in the mail, which we expected to collect at our Family Information Nights.
The forms we need returned are:
We have three options for you to turn in the required paperwork. Please do your best to get us all paperwork by May 5th.
Option 1 (Online Form): You may turn in the three required papers electronically. You may scan them or take a picture of them and upload the files using one of the two options below. To use one of these options you must be logged into either a Google account (all KSD and RSD students have Google accounts) or a Pasco School District Microsoft account.
https://tinyurl.com/deltaregistrationGOOGLE (For any KSD or RSD student—or anyone who has a Google account)
https://tinyurl.com/deltaregistrationPASCO (For PSD students who are signed into their school accounts)
Option 2 (Email): We prefer the use of the online form, but if for some reason you are unable to log into one of the forms you may email your forms to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Option 3 (Regular Mail): You may also mail your forms to the school, but we probably won’t receive them for several weeks as the building is closed at this time. If you mail the forms to the school please send an email to email@example.com to let us know the forms have been mailed.
Forms should be mailed to Delta High School, 5801 Broadmoor Blvd, Pasco, WA 99301
Do you need new copies of the forms? If so, you may download the forms using the links below: (Be sure to open them in Adobe Reader or Pro and not in a web browser--they may not save properly in a web browser)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Andrew Glodo, Special Education Teacher email@example.com
Thank you, and we hope you and your families are safe and well!
The Delta Team
Our first virtual event for our Class of 2024 is our Delta Family Night. We normally hold two of these nights in the spring but are unable to do so at this time due to the state "Stay Home, Stay Healthy" order.
Step 2: Review all of the documentation below, and print if desired. These 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 PathwaysDelta 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 CodeDelta 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 questionsWe 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 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 nurseInformation 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/classof2024questions. We will put together another FAQ and post it at this website, and answer many of the questions also at our information sessions.
Step 5: If you are interested, please attend our Question & Answer session for your district. More information will be posted here with the link to the Zoom on the morning of the presentation. (If you cannot join your session please feel free to join another day)

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).
If you are interested, please attend our Question & Answer session for your district. More information will be posted here with the link to the Zoom on the morning of May 19th. (If you cannot join your session please feel free to join another day)
