Health + Safety

There's nothing more important than keeping our community healthy and safe.

We are adding plexiglass barriers, outdoor tents, increasing cleaning, adding signage, creating marked traffic patterns, developing protocols for reporting and tracking COVID-19, and much more as we prepare for a safe return to our campuses beginning April 12, 2021.

If you suspect you might be sick or contagious, or have been exposed to someone who is ill, here's what to do:

Teaching + Learning

We want to help your child stay engaged, learning and connected, regardless of the instructional delivery format.

We continue to implement best practices in distance learning while tapping into some of the country’s exemplary learning networks of which we are members, as well as to learn from our internal experts at Da Vinci Connect, DVX, and RISE who have been highly successful in blending in-person and remote learning for years.

We urge you to visit the individual school site websites and landing pages to keep up-to-date with academic info, schedules, resources and more!

Campus Operations, Access & Food Services

Our return to campus plans begin on April 12, 2021 with some students returning for on-campus activities. We recognize that during these unprecedented times it can be challenging to connect with teachers and staff. We urge you to contact faculty and staff via email for the fastest response.

For those who must come to campus to drop something off, our office at 201 N. Douglas Street, El Segundo is open Monday through Friday from 7:30AM to 4:00PM, and will serve as a central drop-off for ALL Da Vinci schools. If you are scheduled to come to campus and feel ill or experience symptoms, please do NOT come to campus. When on campus, you must maintain a distance of six feet from each other and wear a face covering at all times.

Meal Program

FREE "grab-and-go" meals for ALL children 18 & under may be picked up at Da Vinci Schools, 201 N. Douglas Street in El Segundo, Monday through Friday from 11:30AM to 1:30PM. For the latest meal information, please visit our Meals webpage.
