Week 20 Preview

Greetings Designers and Design Families,

We off and running for semester two! This week, students signed up for seminar classes and will begin attending seminar classes next week. See schedule below.

Absence / Tardy Notices: DV Design is now sending both absence/tardy calls and e-mails to parents/guardians whenever your student is not in class or arrives late to a class throughout the entire day.  Parent/Guardians should be receiving a call/e-mail at 11 am and again at 4 pm for morning and afternoon classes.

Please make sure that if your student will be absent for the day or is arriving late, that you notify the school by using our new online link here:

Please refer to page 5 of the student handbook for clarification on what is considered excused/unexcused absence.

If you receive a call/e-mail indicating your child was either absent or tardy and you know your child is present at school, please make sure to either call the school at (310) 725-5800 option 4 for Design or e-mail Ms. Vannessa Ramos @ vramos@davincischools.org to verify your student is present in class. Please reach out to Vannessa Ramos if you have any further questions or concerns regarding your student’s attendance.
