Oklahoma Schools To Remain Closed, Offer Continuous Learning

(March 25, 2020) - As districts around the state and across the country continue to grapple with how to proceed in this unprecedented challenge to public health and education, the Mustang School District supports the nation’s need to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. 


This morning, following critical guidance from the CDC, the State Board of Education voted to approve a Continuous Learning Plan that directs all Oklahoma public schools to complete the school year for Oklahoma students without reopening school buildings. This means that the remainder of the school year in the Mustang Public Schools (MPS) will not occur in a traditional school environment that brings large numbers of students and staff together in one location.  

As such, MPS will extend its districtwide closure for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year.

At this time, all schools and offices are not scheduled to reopen until the 2020-2021 school year begins.

Beginning April 6, districts will be expected to provide distance learning for the remainder of the school year.  The Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) has formed a Distance Learning Team that will guide us by providing a framework of expectations.  This is a difficult situation and we appreciate your patience as we navigate it together. We are confident that our team will have a quality continuous learning plan established for our students within the next two weeks. In the meantime, communication will be a top priority. 

We will continue to follow the guidance of local/state/national health and education leaders as we move forward.  For additional information, please visit one of the following:

Monitoring Coronavirus

Working Closely With State/Local Health Partners

(March 6, 2020) - Given the evolving situation, Mustang Public Schools is working with our local and state health partners as we closely monitor the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).  

As you may already be aware, the first case of novel coronavirus, or COVID-19 has been confirmed in Oklahoma. Naturally, it is normal to be concerned when we hear about health-related events like this. Please be assured that the health and safety of students and staff is always a priority.

Mustang Public Schools is Proactive

At Mustang Public Schools, we have a comprehensive cleaning service on contract so that facilities can be biologically treated.  Our staff uses a hospital grade disinfectant which is effective against viruses such as COVID-19. The Teachers and other staff that have students in their rooms have a daily procedure to disinfect areas. In addition, we lay floor finish that has Microban Antimicrobial Protection Technology that inhibits the growth of microbes, therefore, allowing another way for the school district to prevent the spread of illness. 


The continuation of the programs in place: hand hygiene, disinfecting, and Microban Technology will continue to provide Mustang Public Schools with a clean, safe, and healthy environment for the students and staff.  


In the event of an outbreak in our community, we would follow our public health partners’ lead. As always, our focus is to ensure the safety of all students and staff, and continue education with minimal disruption.  


What Can You Do?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offer these tips to prevent influenza and other respiratory viruses: 

  • Get vaccinated annually for the flu

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. 

  • Avoid close contact with sick people 

  • Stay at home if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms 

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth 

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Sleeves are a secondary option, but close proximity to the elbow is required.

  • Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional. 

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. 

  • The CDC recommends that individuals remain home for at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever or signs of a fever (i.e., chills, feeling warm, flushed appearance).  

These are everyday habits that can help prevent the spread of several viruses.
