Health + Safety

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

We are adding plexiglass barriers, 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 campus.

Only staff who are engaged in essential operations are permitted on campus at this time.

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

If You Are Sick / Symptoms / Quarantine vs. Isolation / Coronavirus Testing for Uninsured / Guidance for Care of Children with Symptoms



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 our individual school site websites and landing pages to keep up-to-date with school-specific assignments, resources, schedules, and more!

Campus Operations, Access & Food Services

Our campuses are currently closed to the general public. Only staff engaged in essential campus operations are permitted. We recognize that during these unprecedented times it can be more challenging to connect with teachers and staff, most of whom are working from home. 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 8:00AM to 12:00PM, 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 Dana Middle School, 5504 W. 135th Street, Hawthorne, Monday through Friday from 11:30AM to 1:00PM. Da Vinci is partnering with Wiseburn Unified to provide meals for all of our students during the pandemic. For the latest meal information, please visit our Meals webpage.
