Back to School Night begins at 6:00 pm. Doors will open at 5:50 and the evening will run until 7:50 pm. Campus will be closing at 8:00 pm.  You will be starting the night and receiving your student’s schedule in Advisory so please check in with your student to see who that teacher is!

Please try to use the Da Vinci parking lots (both front and back) as well as the Del Aire Park parking lot if possible before using the residential streets.


Da Vinci Design’s Senior Committee is sponsoring a “Welcome Back Kickback” event to start the year.  There will be music, dancing, snacks, games and more!  This will take place from 7:00-9:00 pm on the DVD/DVC campus. Students of all grade levels welcome! (no guests – Da Vinci Design and Communications students ONLY at this event).
