Back to School Checklist (with dates)
Print this useful Back to School Checklist to make sure you have taken care of all things related to the start of the school year!
School Purchase/Parent Reimburse items vs Family Responsibility items. Each school supply list has two types of supplies. The School Purchase/Parent Reimburse supplies are those for which, due to a lack of storage space, DaVinci Academy would prefer parents pay the school at the beginning of the year (amount indicated on the supply list) so that we may purchase them as needed. However, parents always have the option to purchase those items along with the additional Family Responsibility supplies.
Community Supplies. Please note that most of these supplies will be placed in the classrooms as community supplies and will not be kept by your student. Please do not label individual items unless noted on the supply list.
Mr. Eldred is working with the bus company to map and finalize the bus routes and satalite stops for the coming school year. Final bus schedules will be published with the online registration information. Please refer to the Transportation tab of the Forms & Information page. For specific questions, please email Mr. Eldred or call (763) 754-6577.
Around July 24, you will receive a separate email to pre-order August lunches. For those of you who are new to DaVinci Academy or if you are simply unfamiliar with the lunch program, please check out the Food Service page. There you will find an overview of the program, how to order lunches, and how to apply for free or reduced-price school lunches. Please note that, in order to qualify for free or reduced-price lunches, a new application must be submitted each year. Any questions on this program can be directed to Mrs. Swearingen.
