Happy Sunday, DVC Families!
We had a great first week of school. It was wonderful to have our students back on campus. Thank you for choosing us and trusting us with your child’s education. We take our responsibility seriously and seek to provide an engaging learning environment where students can thrive.
We are very proud of our students for the way they took health and safety seriously this week. Our DVC students did a great job keeping their masks on while indoors all week long. We also appreciate our families who have arrangements this week to keep their students home if they did not pass the self-screening that we ask all families to do daily before coming to school.
Please visit tinyurl.com/dvcwebsite for easy access to links and read below for some important updates:
Back to School Night: We have moved the date and time of Back to School Night. Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, September 1st at 5:30pm. We will begin promptly then with a meeting in the West Plaza (Back Yard) under the white canopies / tents. We look forward to seeing all our families at this important event!
Chromebooks: Students will need to have regular, reliable access to a computer at home starting soon. If you have already pre-registered to receive a chromebook for home use (i.e. a “homebook”), please plan to pick it up when you come to Back to School Night (Wednesday, September 1st at 5:30pm). If you would like to request that the school provide a chromebook for home use, please fill out the form at this link: Request for School-Issued Chromebook for Home Use
Tech Support: Our tech department will be providing support for all students who are having trouble accessing their Da Vinci accounts next week between 8:00am and 8:30am from Monday to Thursday. If your student would like to bring their own personal laptop to school with them and they are having trouble connecting to our wifi, please have them arrive a few minutes early to school and check in at the Wolves’ Den (i.e. the conference table at the main entrance to our floor). Our IT department will be happy to assist.
School Picture Day: On Thursday, 8/26 and Friday, 8/27, students will be getting their school pictures taken. If students have English class during Period 1A, 2A, or 3A, they will take their picture on Thursday, 8/26. If students have English class during Period 1B, 2B, or 3B, they will take their picture on Friday, 8/27. For more information regarding picture day pricing, please click here: Da Vinci Picture Day Pricing Information
Seminars: We call the elective classes at the end of the day our “seminars.” We will be posting the offerings and asking students to indicate their preferences on Thursday, August 26th. Seminars begin on Monday, August 30th.
Overnighter: In order to ensure the health and safety of our Da Vinci students, Da Vinci has decided to delay the Overnighter events until COVID case rates improve to a level that lowers the risk of the highly transmissible COVID Delta variant. At this time, the 9th and 10th graders are not scheduled to attend an overnighter in September and the event has been removed from the calendar.
Wishing you a happy Sunday!
