Please make sure that your child arrives to school on time and ready to test.  For the ELA portion of the FSA, students are encouraged to bring their own earbuds.  Personal earbuds are part of the DMS school-wide supply list.   Having a personal set of earbuds also promotes a healthy environment for your child.
