Dear Da Vinci Community,

This update provides important information about tomorrow night’s Class of 2024 Prom.

As many of you may know by now, there have been escalating protests at nearby college campuses, including at USC in close proximity to where our Senior Prom was scheduled to take place.

After conferring with law enforcement agencies and receiving new information last night related to security, the decision has been made to move the Senior Prom to a location in El Segundo to ensure the safety of our students, staff and security team. 

WHAT:  Senior Prom
WHEN:  Friday, May 3, 2024 | 6:30-10:00 PM
WHERE:  The Terrace, 2361 Rosecrans Ave., 2nd Floor, El Segundo – NEW

(The Terrace is located at the corner of Rosecrans/Continental Circle; there is plenty of free parking in the parking structure – a map will be provided soon.)

This may strike as initially disappointing news, yet I am confident that tomorrow will be a wonderful evening for our graduates in an elegant new location. I am grateful to our entire community for coming together to make sure the Prom goes on as scheduled.

I know many of you may have questions or concerns you wish to share about this change of venue. I ask that you refrain from reaching out to your school leadership and senior committee advisors unless absolutely necessary so they can focus on planning and making sure the prom is fun and memorable for the Class of 2024. If you feel you must reach out, please contact us at

Let’s all celebrate the achievements of the Class of 2024 with pride and joy as they embark on their exciting new journeys. 

I wish to extend deep gratitude to Richard Lundquist, Bob Tarnofsky and the entire Continental Development team, Da Vinci’s school leadership teams, senior advisory teachers, operations and safety teams, Wiseburn Superintendent Dr. Blake Silvers, and the El Segundo Police Department for adapting rapidly and effectively to a challenging situation.
