Thank you for your patience in helping with the new grade 1 & grade 2 student pick up procedure.
It has been brought to our attention by the city of Cambridge that cars cannot be parked on the city streets.
Starting Thursday, October 29, grade 1 & 2 students will be dismissed at 3:00 and come out door #1 (cafeteria doors). This is the door just to the east of
CPS’s main building door #21. We are no longer able to pick up students behind the buses.
Our hope is that parents with students in these grades will not come to the school before 2:55 so that the kindergarten parents will be gone from the parking lot.

Schoolwide Title 1 Program
Cambridge Primary

Cambridge Primary is designated as a “Schoolwide Title 1 School.”  Title 1, a federally funded program, provides financial support to schools for the purpose of improving reading and math skills. These funds purchase the services of one full-time teacher and two instructional assistants who work directly with our students. The program also provides our school with supplies for supplemental instruction, blended learning initiatives, and family involvement activities.

All students at Cambridge Primary school benefit from the schoolwide Title 1 designation. One of the goals of the Schoolwide Improvement Plan is to provide more individualized instruction in flexible, small groups. This goal also aligns with the District Strategic Planning efforts.  Specifically, Strategy V: “We will provide the tools and support to meet the unique needs of every student”.   Title 1 staff may help students by giving extra instruction in these flexible or small groups, either within the regular classroom or in a quieter setting outside the regular classroom. These groups will change throughout the school year as the needs of the students change. A formal notice will not be sent to parents as students move in and out of services.  Each student’s classroom teacher will continue to communicate with parents regarding their child’s learning.  The Title 1 funded interventionists will also assist with assessments and/or the screening of all students.  This information helps to inform our instruction and identify individual student needs.  We are excited about the flexibility of services that a schoolwide program allows and anticipate huge gains towards meeting the individual needs of our students.  

We look forward to working with families to help students be as successful in their education as possible. ~  If you have any questions about the Title 1 Program, please contact Rhonda Fischer at 763-691-6502 or email rmalecha@c-ischools.org or Tammy Kraft, Federal Programs Coordinator, at 763-689-6204 or email tkraft@cambridge.k12.mn.us

New District 911 Visitor Management

Cambridge-Isanti has implemented a district wide visitor safety procedure.  Upon entering the building, all visitors must report to the main office. All visitors will be asked to verify their identity by showing office staff a form of photo identification, such as a driver's license or government issued ID card. We will not be able to check you in as a visitor without your photo ID. Your ID will be scanned and a photo visitor badge will be printed. Office staff will retain your ID card for the duration of your visit. Your picture ID will be returned to you when you return to the office to check out.

CPS lives by this rule; always try to do your best at school.
Have fun, be safe and live the golden rule and we all love CPS.
