You could try to keep the milk in for a month and see if he is getting better. The reason is that the part of the intestine that gets damaged is the part that digests milk. If he only has a small amount of damage, he could be able to digest it OK. I don't think it effects the healing from Celiac but it could make you think nothing is happening if he has a problem digesting milk.
Google lactose in foods. Some cheeses, yogurts etc have a lot less than milk does. Maybe you could get the OJ with the calcium and he could still have cheddar cheese at one meal. Just reduce a bit.

Can you try cutting him down and substituting where possible? Have him try Lactaid? I drink a glass of milk every day and Lactaid was the answer. Soy was nasty to me and I couldn't adjust. Almond milk was ok. Lactaid was my answer, but others prefer the other varieties so you could experiment until you find his preference.

I must be a lucky one because I'm guessing my lactose intolerance kept me away from milk long enough to not remember exactly how pure white milk should taste. I gulped some Lactaid down last night and it met my memory of how milk used to be, but that memory is probably skewed from reality from the years of passing up milk. I drank the 2% variety and I'm not sure I could handle the taste of whole or skim.
Lactaid does not taste similar at all >_< Waaaaay too sweet and watery and tastes off.
