Dear Prep families,
 
Thank you for your continued patience with us as CIM moves through this very complicated, concerning and fluid COVID-19 situation. Our top priority is the continued health and well-being of the entire CIM community.
 
After the Governor announced that all K-12 schools would start a three-week spring break on Tuesday, CIM made the difficult decision to suspend all in-person teaching at main campus and all branch locations, at least through April 6. (This applies to preparatory, pre-college and conservatory teaching.)
 
Faculty and students are encouraged to continue with their private lessons using online tools. Please coordinate lesson times and teaching platforms directly with your teacher.  
 
We know it is hard when conditions change, and we’re very sorry to make this decision so soon after announcing that lessons, coachings and certain other small ensembles could continue their work.
 
Your flexibility and understanding is appreciated.
 
Please email preparatory@cim.edu or call 216.795.3153 if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Jerrod Price
Executive Director of Preparatory, Enrollment & Pathway Programs
