Dear Da Vinci Families and Staff,
As of today, March 17, there are still no known cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) within Da Vinci or Wiseburn schools.
School Status (pertains to DV Connect, Communications, Design, Science, DVX)
Da Vinci Schools will continue with virtual instruction through Friday, April 3, 2020. Da Vinci Schools will remain closed from April 6-10, 2020 for Spring Break. It is our hope that we will resume on-campus instruction on Monday, April 13. However, we will remain flexible and will do what is best for the health and safety of our students and staff, in consultation with local and state authorities.
Da Vinci RISE High will continue with virtual instruction this week (March 16-20). Classes and programming will be canceled during Intersession (March 23-April 3). RISE will resume virtual instruction on April 6. It is our hope that we will return to our learning center campuses on Monday, April 13. However, we will remain flexible and will do what is best for the health and safety of our students and staff, in consultation with local and state authorities.
For those who do not have a device at home for virtual learning, we will be open again tomorrow (March 18) from 10am-12pm at DV Connect, DVC, DVD, DVS and DVX for students/families to pick up school-issued Chromebooks.
RISE-Hawthorne students may pick up their tech/resources and meals at the 201 N. Douglas campus from 12:00-1:30pm daily. RISE-APCH students may pick up their tech/resources and meals at APCH from 12:00-1:00pm M-F.

Check out the Menus here. Please be aware that, due to the unusual circumstances, every meal item listed on the menu may not be available during the duration of the meal distribution. Thank you for your understanding.
I am deeply proud of all of our Da Vincians — our students, families, teachers and staff — who are all pulling together and rising to meet these challenges with optimism, flexibility, creativity, and determination. I encourage all of us to look out for each other as we take care of ourselves. I am confident that our Da Vinci and Wiseburn communities will meet this challenge.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to your school leader or reply to this email. We also want to direct you to our Coronavirus webpage for regular updates.
