All DVC 10th grade students are scheduled to spend all day Wednesday, April 20th in Running Springs, California (near Big Bear Lake)! This special trip will include a variety of recreational and team-building games and activities including a zipline and skate park. In order to make the most of our day-trip, we are asking all students to arrive at DVC by 8:00am on Wednesday. We will be returning to DVC around 9:00pm that evening. Please see information about what to bring (and what not to bring) at this link: DVC Retreat Information for Students and Families
All students are required to have completed these permission forms and submit them to their Grade-Level Homeroom Teacher by Tuesday, April 19th. The forms include a Da Vinci Permission Slip (page 1) and a Camp Pondo Permission Slip (page 2). Both DV and Camp Pondo require separate forms. We will be printing copies and giving them out to students on Monday, April 18th, and students who do not have a completed form submitted by 8am on Wednesday, April 20th will not be able to board the buses. You are welcome to print the forms at home this week and send them with your student on Monday, April 18th. We know this is a short time to complete and submit the required forms, and we appreciate your help in ensuring that all 10th grade students can attend this special trip.

Important Medical Information: We are happy to let you know that our Da Vinci School Nurse will be attending the trip with DVC on Wednesday, April 20th. All students requiring any medication (prescription or over the counter) for Camp Pondo will need to have a School Medication Authorization completed or the student will not be allowed to bring the medication. We encourage students who are prescribed inhalers and/or allergy medication to consider bringing since an outdoor camp field trip often leads to the need for medications/inhalers even if you haven’t needed it at school. School Medication Authorization Forms can be submitted in person or you can have your physician submit directly to the school nurse Emily Green (firstname.lastname@example.org). Fax: 1-310-356-3224
