Hi and welcome to the CMI resource page for parents.  We’ve been creating resources for schools for 30 years, but it is only recently that we’ve created a resource page just for parents.
We’ll be adding great things to this page over the next year or so.  We’ll have more downloadable guidelines, but we’re also going to create little online learning segments and informational videos to help parents at times when their kids are struggling.
Feel free to be in touch with us to ask for the kinds of resources you’d like.  Some we might be able to create and upload pretty quickly, others we’ll add to our list of things to do.
Check back often.  We hope to be adding something to your page at least once a month.

CMI Download Area

Welcome to our download area where you will find guides that help parents of K-12 youth deal with a range of crises:
  • current crises making media coverage
  • some of the more challenging, but somewhat common school crises (deaths of students or staff in car wrecks, suicides, homicides, other)
  • some critical past events, ranging from natural disasters to terrorism.
You can download each guide in PDF format by clicking on any link below.

Please consider sending these links along to others who might be interested.

“All downloads must be copied exactly as they are, complete with the logo and copyright information at the bottom. No portions can be lifted and inserted in another document even if credit is given, nor can any portions be amended and reproduced as “adapted from materials of Cheri Lovre.”

If a portion of a handout is not applicable and you wish to use only some parts of a reproducible, contact CMI and ask for a handout to be created that includes only the portions you wish, and let Ms. Lovre send you a pdf file complete with the logo and copyright information at the bottom.

From Ms. Lovre, “I want to be generous in sharing of many portions of my materials. At the same time, use of these materials requires having the integrity to respect my work, to understand the risk you place me in by taking portions of handouts out of context, and to have the ethics to uphold the spirit in which these materials are offered for your use. I appreciate your honest consideration of this.” Cheri Lovre
