Health Alert

Los Angeles County and Da Vinci Schools are experiencing extremely high respiratory infections among students and staff including Flu, Respiratory Syncytial Virus, also known as RSV and COVID-19. Please test for COVID if your student is experiencing respiratory symptoms. 

Please do not send children to school if they are sick with acute symptoms (fever, productive or new cough, diarrhea/vomiting). Some of the cold and respiratory symptoms can linger for some time unfortunately. We encourage students to stay home when acutely ill and for those who are on the mend, who are able to get good sleep and have a typical appetite and energy level to return to school. Please continue to report all absences to the school office via phone or email. 

Please continue to report all positive COVID cases, including during Thanksgiving break to school nurse Emily Green egreen@davincischools.org. We will then provide return guidance. General isolation instructions are to isolate for a minimum of 5 days from positive test or symptom onset and then return to school after a negative test on day 6-10. No student needs to be isolated for longer than 10 days. 

COVID tests are available in all health offices, please encourage students to pick up a COVID test prior to break to support any holiday testing needs as holiday breaks approach

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is strongly encouraging the following preventive measures:

  • Frequent hand washing including before meals, after restroom use, after handling tissues
  • Consider the use of masks indoors, with holiday gatherings or when in a group setting
  • Coughs and sneezes should be covered with a tissue or sleeve, not hands
  • Tissues should be properly disposed of in trash receptacles
  • Avoid physical contact and sharing utensils with anyone who is exhibiting symptoms of an illness
  • Get Influenza and COVID-19 vaccinations if eligible

Families should seek medical attention immediately if:

  • Their child is having difficulty breathing
  • Their child is showing signs of dehydration (no urine in 8 hours, no tears when crying)
  • Their child has a persistently high fever, or is looking/acting very sick or lethargic

Take good care! 

Dr. Emily Green, Director of Health Services

Attention Juniors! The Coolidge Scholarship is now open to apply to!

The 2022-23 Coolidge Scholarship application is now live.

A quick refresher: the Coolidge Scholarship is a full-ride, four-year, merit scholarship that may be used by recipients for undergraduate study at any accredited college or university in the United States. Any high school junior who plans to enroll in college in the fall of 2024 and is an American citizen or legal permanent resident is eligible to apply (current high school seniors are not eligible to apply). Winners may use the scholarship to pursue any academic major.

Academic excellence is the primary criterion considered by the Coolidge Scholarship. Secondary criteria include an interest in public policy and an appreciation of the values President Coolidge championed. Successful candidates will also demonstrate humility and have a record of genuine service to their communities. A complete description of the scholarship’s criteria is available here.
