MILITARY FAMILies at dlamp

The Dual Language Academy of the Monterey Peninsula (DLAMP) is a warm and welcoming center of learning for our Kindergarten through 8th-grade families. Several of our students are children of Military Families and it is our desire to work together with the Military resources and Command Structure to ensure that students and families feel like this is their home. We benefit from having a Military Family Life Counselor on campus as needed, immediate access to a School/Military Liaison, and a Command Structure at Fort Ord that is highly concerned with not only the academic success of service members but also a positive, supportive environment for families. Our desire at DLAMP is that we can provide an experience that will prepare your children to excel in school regardless of where your family may be posted after Monterey. Thank you for your service to our Nation, and please do not hesitate to let us know how we can better serve you.

Presidio of Monterey School Liaison's Message

Dear Dual Language Academy Families:

My name is Elaine Vrolyks and I am the Presidio of Monterey School Liaison Officer. I would like to take the opportunity to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year. My hope is that your student has a smooth transition into the Dual Language Academy. I know the importance of available resources, and providing answers to your questions will be my primary concern.

Marshall Elementary School and the Dual Language Academy have many resources which are tailored to meet the needs of all its students. As the Presidio of Monterey School Liaison Officer, I offer the following services to military families:

  • Special needs communications liaison between military families and their school.

  • Scheduled meeting times available for parents to meet and to discuss their children’s academic concerns.

  • Working with students of military families to support academic and social needs arising from transition issues.

The goals of the military liaison program are to identify barriers to academic success and develop solutions; promote parental involvement in their children’s education; develop and coordinate military partnerships in education; provide parent’s with the tools they need to overcome obstacles to education that stem from the military lifestyle; and to promote and educate local communities and schools regarding the needs of military children.

If you have any questions or would like to meet with me please feel free to contact me.

I am looking forward to an exciting school year!

Yours truly,

Elaine Vrolyks
