CMP-Shingle Springs Open Today

Dear Parents,

CMP Shingle Springs and all the schools in the Buckeye District and surrounding areas are open today.  Some of you may have heard that the CMP campuses down in the Sacramento area are closing today due to issues with air quality and smoke.  

We are continuing to monitor the air quality and have modified all outside activities, including P.E. and recess.  Our 4/5/6 Touch of Understanding On-Site Field Trip is being modified and will be held completely indoors. Our 2/3 students will still make the short walk across the street for their VAPA Performance this afternoon, although parents who prefer to pick up and drive their students are encouraged to do so by 1:05pm.

If your child is a member of a sensitive health group, please make sure we have been notified.

We look forward to seeing your children on campus today!

CMP COVID-19 Update - All Campuses Closure Extended

Dear CMP Community:

Today, we are writing to update you on the anticipated length of our closure as well as to provide an update on our current efforts to meet the academic and social and emotional needs of our students.

CMP continues to carefully monitor the recommendations and directives issued by local, state, and federal leaders. On Wednesday, Sacramento County issued a Public Health Order directing all residents to stay at home, unless they are providing or accessing essential services.  Yesterday, the Governor issued a “Stay at Home” order for all of California.

As a result of these orders, all CMP schools will remain closed at least through April 20th.  The CMP Board will meet on April 20th to decide on any potential closure extensions.

Dear CMP Community,

We want to keep you updated and informed on CMP’s response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) which we have been monitoring all weekend. 

At around 12pm on Saturday we learned that Elk Grove Unified School District would be closing school next week.  In our message to the CMP Community on 2/27/20 we indicated that CMP would be following the lead of our authorizing districts and following guidance from public health agencies on our response to COVID-19. As a result, when Elk Grove Unified School district announced it was canceling school this week we also canceled school at our two Elk Grove sites for Monday and Tuesday.

All other sites (Capitol, American River, Carmichael, Orangevale, and Shingle Springs) remain open this week.

Counseling Summer Information mental health clip art

Hello CMP Families,

As we head to summer break and approach the end of Mental Health Awareness Month, I wanted to provide some additional resources. The coronavirus pandemic and recent world events have had a profound impact on all of us, with many experiencing mental health struggles as a result. Now more than ever, it is crucial to stay connected and reduce the stigma around mental illness. No one should feel alone or go without the information, help, and support they need.

Fight Summer Boredom! summer boredom

As Montessori teachers and parents, we know that learning does not stop just because a child is not in school. Research supports this, maintaining that the brain is changing and learning all the time based on experiences in the environment. (Jensen, 2014) Without a stimulating environment, however, the experiences are rather mundane and passive.

Here are just a few suggestions that you can easily incorporate into your summer lifestyle.
