POL Schedule Reminder

DVD Parents and Guardians,

POLs are upon us and we are very excited to see the students give presentations and show their growth and mastery from fall semester. Please be advised that if you plan on coming to campus watch your student’s presentation, you must check in at the front office on the bottom floor and receive a visitors pass. If you come to DVD’s floor without a visitors pass, you will be directed back to the bottom floor to obtain one.

POLs run from 12/14 through 12/21. Students are either in the morning (8:00-12:00) or afternoon (12:00-4:00) session and lunch is served between 11:30-12:30 so that students from both sessions have the opportunity to purchase lunch/ Below is the POL letter that was shared last week, with more detailed information regarding the POL days.

Friday 12/22 is a minimum day that runs from 9:00-1:30.

Evacuation Practice Today

Dear DVD Families,

Today we had an unplanned evacuation of our building today at 9:55 am. The cause was determined to be smoke from a lab that was taking place in a chemistry classroom. Everything was found to be normal and safe for students to return, and the students returned to class at 10:15.

We are proud of our students for handling this event efficiently and safely!

Week 15 Update

Designers, we have 3 weeks left of the first semester.  POLs start on Thursday, December 14th! Stay tuned for more specific POL info in days to come.

No Saturday plans? Support our 9th grade students at the DTLA Makerfaire this Saturday, 12/2. See previous post for more information.

Senior families, there is a FAFSA Workshop on Monday, December 11th at 5:00 pm at Da Vinci Design. Contact your student’s counselor for more information.

Have a wonderful weekend.
