To best expedite this process, please bring a letter-sized paper with the following information clearly written on it:  Student(s)’ school(s), Student(s)’ grade level, and Student(s)’ last and first name.  The student or parent/guardian will be asked to display that paper to the Da Vinci staff member distributing the headsets to facilitate the distribution. The headsets will be distributed under a canopy which will be set-up in Lane 1 of the parking lot, the lane closest to the gym.

Additional dates and times will be scheduled in the weeks to come in an effort to continue to provide opportunities for pickup as needed. Please feel free to contact the school’s front office if you have any questions about this.  Thank you!
