DVS begins tomorrow morning in the Theater!

We are finishing up our preparations for the first day of school tomorrow and we can’t wait to welcome your kids back for the 2018-2019 school year!

To avoid the inevitable first-day traffic congestion, it is recommended that you drop off your student by 8:00am! We will bring DVS students into the theater at 8:20 where they will find their advisor (students’ advisor names are posted inside the theater), and at 8:40 we will go up the stairs to begin our first day.

See you in the morning!!

Student Supply Lists & Changes for Season 10

Several of you have asked for a list of recommended supplies that students have for this year, so we’ve created a document for that which you can see here: Suggested Student Supply List

Also, here is a list of some of the changes we’ve made in our program and practices for the 2018-2019 school year:

What’s New at DVS for Season 10 – Parent Edition (rev. 8-11-18)

We hope you all enjoy the last days of your summer vacation!!

“Season 10″ begins on Tuesday!

We’ve been working hard to prepare for Season 10 and can’t wait to welcome all of our students back on Tuesday morning!

Here is the schedule for the first week of school: Week 1 Schedule


Students are advised to arrive between 8:00 and 8:20 to avoid the traffic congestion that inevitably comes on the first day of school! Since we are still sharing our parking lot with the construction crews, space will be tight and we are asking parents not to park in the lot when dropping off students on the first day. (The school building will be closed to students and parents before 9:00am). Here are more details pertaining to arrival & departure: Directions for Arrival & Dismissal @ Da Vinci

We have made several changes to our programs and practices for this year, which are summarized on this document. Please check it out!
