Residency verification for ELEMENTARY STUDENTS set for Aug. 3

Mustang Public Schools has always verified a student's home address, or residency, in the spring. Last year, the district implemented an extra level of security to ensure each student enrolled should be attending Mustang Schools.

For ELEMENTARY STUDENTS ONLY, a special day has been set aside to prove residency. On Aug. 3 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., parents are asked to stop by their child's elementary school with one proof of residency. These can include utility bills, a warranty deed statement, ad-valorem tax statement, mortgage statement or rental agreements. If a parent is bringing a bill, the bill must be from July or August. Telephone, internet, cable television bills, checks and drivers licenses do not count as proofs of residency.

By setting aside a specific time and date, the district is hoping the process goes smoothly and parents can be in and out quickly. For parents who cannot make it on Aug. 3, they can come at a later date with their proof of residency, but the process will take longer.

For intermediate, middle school and high school students, parents will need to bring one proof of residency for schedule pickup.

Enrollment for 2017-2018 opens June 12
 
Anyone moving into the Mustang Public School District can stop by Mustang's Central Enrollment Center and enroll all of their children for the 2017-2018 school year in one stop. Central Enrollment will be open Monday through Thursday, June 12 - 30 and July 10 - 28. Central Enrollment is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. to make it more convenient for working parents.

Only complete enrollment packets will be accepted. See a list of the requirements and download the appropriate packet at www.mustangps.org/enrollment.aspx.

Central Enrollment is housed in the front office at Mustang High School, 801 S. Snyder Drive. From Highway 152 and Mustang Road, go south on Mustang Road. Turn right on Forster. Drive through the front entrance of Mustang High School. Parking is on the left. The front door of the school is at the top of the oval.

Hofmeister announces summer meal initiative to feed hungry kids

In Oklahoma, nearly 62 percent of public school students are eligible for free and reduced-priced lunches. During the summer months when school is not in session, only 6.4 percent of those same students participate in summer feeding programs, ranking Oklahoma 51st in the nation.
To that end, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister today announced the launch of #FoodforThought, a public awareness campaign by the Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) and its Office of Child Nutrition to significantly increase the number of free meals served to Oklahoma kids 18 and under during the federally funded Summer Food Service Program.
