PTO Information

The PTO at ADV shares the mission and vision to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

The teachers, administration, and ADV Board of Directors value and work in partnership with the ADV PTO. At ADV, every child and every family matters and the PTO is a tool to bridge between school and home. ADV PTO assists with communication of school news by maintaining an electronic email group, encourages parent and public involvement, assists parents in learning additional skills to prepare their children (e.g. child safety programs), and most importantly, advocates and speaks on behalf of the children at ADV.

Throughout the school year, the PTO meets monthly and hosts several events at the school, including festivals, a Mingle event in Downtown Dunedin, and some after-school field trips. Each year, membership forms are sent home with a minimal fee to join. Teachers, parents, grandparents, extended family members, and community members are all encouraged to join and volunteer through the Academie Da Vinci PTO family as you help us and we help you make every ADV student’s potential into a reality.

Absence Notification

Please note, if your child has been absent from school for 3 or more consecutive days:

  • Three or more consecutive absences require a doctor’s note or other documentation.
  • This form & accompanying documentation below must be received within 2 days of the student’s return to school to help school officials determine the excuse/unexcused status of the absence(s).
  • Please keep a copy of all forms/documentation in the event it may be requested if a student has accumulated 3 or more absences in a semester course or 10 or more absences in an annual course.

In an effort to standardize attendance procedures to review school absences, no other letters/forms will be accepted.
