POLs begin next Thursday. See below for more information on grade level POLs and final opportunities to demonstrate mastery. In addition, all students will participate in an End-of-Semester Survey.

Student Headphone Distribution this Saturday

Greetings Parents/Guardians:

For those of you who were unable to stop by last week to pick up a headset with microphone for your student(s), we will be having another distribution take place this weekend at our campus on Saturday, November 7th from 9:00am to 1:00pm. No RSVP is necessary.

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!

DVD Wellness Screener Opt-Out Form

In an effort to be more proactive in supporting students’ mental health, a wellness screener will be given to all students at Da Vinci Design HS. Results from the screener will be used by the counselors to create interventions such as coping skills strategies, counselor check ins, and referrals for therapy.

Scores will not be shared with students or parents. Parents will be notified and parent consent is required if a student receives counseling services delivered by Antioch or Pepperdine therapists. If you would like your child to OPT-OUT and not do the screener, please fill out this form by Friday, November 6, 2020.

Be well,
DVD Counselors
