We had a great first week at DVC! Our professional photographer, Stacee Lianna, took some great pictures of our first day! Feel free to check them out here: First Day Photos
Schedule Change Requests: Students were enrolled in seminar classes this week. Seminars are elective periods that meet on Monday and Thursdays (Period MH) or Tuesdays and Fridays (Period TF). We do our best to match students with their preferences. Many seminars are full, but there are some that still have space. Students who wish to make a change to their seminar classes should complete this form: DVC Schedule Change Request Form We will do our best to accommodate as many requests as possible.
Metro Passes: Da Vinci Schools is participating in LA Metro’s GoPass Program again this year! This means any DVC student can receive a free Metrocard that, once activated, will allow them to ride on the Metro at no cost until June 30, 2024. Students can pick up a card and instructions to activate their card from Jackie Martinez (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the DVC Front Desk.
