UPDATE from MRS. GALLAHER…

 

Good Morning Career Prep Family, 

.

I just wanted to give you some updates. 

.

This week Governor Luhan Grisham and the Navajo Nation both declared a Shelter in Place until April 10th. Please abide by the guidelines and stay safe. We have not been given guidance on how this will effect our returning to schools in the future. As soon as I know I will relay that information to you. 

.

If you have access to Facebook our Career Prep Facebook page has information about meals that are being served at SHS, KMS, and NHS; furthermore; there is a bus stop schedule for meal drop offs as well. This schedule is posted on the Facebook page and CCSD district website. There are educational activities from the Heritage department and Mr. Young's Art program for students to complete at home with little to no supplies. Students are still encouraged to read and write about this experience that has so greatly impacted their lives. 

.

Please contact me through the Career Prep Facebook messenger with any concerns or needs that your student might have. Stay safe and know that we as a staff all look forward to being with our students at school again.

Phoenix News:.

SCHOOL CLOSURE

Governor.Michelle Lujan Grisham has declared that schools in New Mexico will be closed for the rest of the school year to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Students will not return to school at this point, and CCSD is working on ways to continue learning through the end of the year. We will let you know as soon as a decision is made and we can move forward.

.

ONLY ESSENTIAL PERSONNEL will be allowed in school buildings during this time, and some locations will be working on providing services and meals, such as drive-up meals.

..

As shared by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) please remember to:

· avoid large crowds

· cough into your elbow if you must cough

· thoroughly clean surfaces using household cleaners with bleach

.

Since COVID-19 is the most harmful for elders and those with chronic health conditions, try to find ways to care for elders and others in ways that limit exposure to too many people. For most people, COVID-19 will not be as damaging as it is for our elders and those with chronic illness.

.

ART STUDENTS- You can work on your Art assignments and just have some fun without having to buy any art supplies! Just click on the links below. You can also complete some of your assignments ahead of time!

Mission Statement:
The mission of Career Prep High School is to provide students with the opportunities necessary to earn a high school diploma. This will be accomplished by creating a positive learning environment, maintaining high expectations and challenging students to make choices that will result in life-long learning, career development, cultural awareness and community involvement.

The complex is located on West Highway 64 just past Eva B. Stokely Elementary School and the Phil Thomas Performing Arts Center.


Turn west at the light by the City Market shopping complex and proceed past Dine College West, Shiprock High, The Phil, EBS.

.

Turn and go through the gate at the CPHS digital sign.


The entrance to Career Prep is near the flag poles.

Since it opened in 1994 as the alternative school for Central Consolidated School District, Career Prep High School has been serving students who have needed a different approach to education.  With its smaller learning community, focus on relationships with students, and a career focus, CPHS students find an opportunity to excel. Student interests guide their course selection towards a career program of study. Faculty advisors assist them in pursuing their career goals and overcoming barriers to success in school.
