Dear Da Vinci Waldorf School Community,

After careful consideration we have decided that Da Vinci Waldorf School will shift our start and end times for all programs beginning this fall.

All programs will shift to begin 15 minutes earlier and end 15 minutes earlier (with the exception of Aftercare, which will still go until 6PM). See specific program start and end times below.

Building Opens 8:00AM
Preschool & Kindergarten 8:15AM – 12:15PM
Extended Day 12:15PM – 3:15PM
Grades 8:15AM – 3:15PM
Late Pickup (Grades and Extended Day) 3:25PM
Aftercare 3:15PM – as late as 6:00PM

Just as before, parents should plan to arrive 5 minutes earlier than release time.

This decision comes for a few reasons. It will benefit those who need to get to work after morning drop off. Grades parents will avoid heavy traffic during afternoon pickup that comes from the factory across the street releasing at 3:30. An earlier start and end time will also cut heavy afternoon traffic time for employees and parents who travel long distances.

As always, we welcome any questions you may have.
