Coronavirus COVID-19 Update

A Message From Assistant Dean John W. Martin

March 13, 2020, Update

Dear CCM Preparatory and Community Engagement Community,

Although there have been no documented cases of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus within our campus community, the University of Cincinnati is making needed preparations to be able to quickly respond if COVID-19 is detected.

In the spirit of the March 12 update from Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, which includes a three-week closure of all Ohio schools beginning March 16, and following the University of Cincinnati’s updated public health practices, CCM Preparatory and Community Engagement Community is implementing the following steps out of an abundance of caution:

  • All on- and off-campus face-to-face and one-on-one instruction is suspended for the remainder of the semester effective immediately. This includes all lessons, classes, rehearsals and face-to-face instruction of any kind.
  • Remote instruction may occur if opportunities can be arranged between faculty and families.
  • All performances for the remainder of the semester are cancelled.
  • CCM Preparatory and Community Engagement staff will work remotely. Although we will monitor our voicemail, we advise using email communication at if you have any additional questions or concerns.

General information updates and resources can be accessed at

I will contact you again once we have determined the best solutions regarding hourly, weekly and semesterly instruction as it relates to tuition paid for services and our hourly workers.

As a parent myself, I understand your frustration and disappointment regarding these changes and cancellations, as well as the fluidity of this situation. The health and wellbeing of the entire CCM community and the education and care of our students remain our highest priorities.

Thank you so much for your understanding, your patience and your cooperation.
