LOTTERY AND ENROLLMENT- TK/K Lottery Postponed Enrollment Image

CMP continues to carefully monitor the recommendations and directives issued by local, state, and federal leaders.  Yesterday, the Governor issued a “Stay at Home” order for all of California.  Under this new order, we felt it best to postpone the upcoming TK/K lottery.  We will not be live streaming the lottery this coming Monday at 3:30.  We are shooting to run a lottery at the end of April, but we will need to remain flexible. Due to the rapidly evolving situation, we will continue to monitor the public health guidance and make adjustments as necessary. 

You can expect to receive future communications via email and we will be updating this website.

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.

A Message from the Superintendent: January & February Update Part 1

CMP COVID 19 (Coronavirus) Update - New Guidance from Department of Public Health and Department of Education

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.
