Dear parents and guardians,


We have one more week of progress monitoring assessments this week.  Please make every attempt to ensure your cadet is in school or online every day.  It’s important for our cadets in the building to keep their laptops in the lockers at night so that they are fully charged for testing each day.  Thank you to all of our DVHR parents who were able to bring their cadet up to JSMAL to test. 

Contact Ms. Brooks if you can get your cadet up to school this week during the day or from 3:30 to 5:00 pm.  Her email is  The only day she is not testing DVHR is on Tuesday, March 2.
