We hope this message finds you and your students safe and healthy. Now more than ever, it is important for our students be able to talk openly, honestly, and gently with each other and with their adult supporters in a safe space. To help facilitate this, in the morning on Thursday (6/4) the Da Vinci High Schools will open up affinity groups for students to share their feelings and experiences with each other, with links to join provided to students in their grade-level Google Classrooms. More information about Affinity Groups can be found here.
On Friday, we will be observing a day of reflection for staff and students. No POLs or academic work will take place on these days, and we ask all students to join their advisory families via Zoom at 10:30am to come together to share and listen to one another and talk about how we can begin moving forward individually and collectively to address the disparities, inequities, and prejudice in our society. Links to those meetings will be provided to students on the Google Classroom page for their advisory class.
As always, we encourage you to reach out to us if there is anything we can do to help and support you and our students.
Sincerely, Steve & Grace
