The Pre-kindergarten/Kindergarten Round-up is Tuesday, March 21 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Mustang High School Commons. Mustang High School is located at 801 S. Snyder Drive, Mustang. From Mustang Road and Highway 152, take Mustang Road south. Turn right on Forster and enter through the main MHS entrance. Please come in through the main doors. The round-up and Pre-K/Kindergarten placement is not on a first-come, first served basis. Everyone has an equal opportunity to get in the site they prefer.
To speed up the process for patrons, parents are asked to stagger their arrival times based on last name:
• If your child’s last name begins with the letters A-J, please attend Round Up between 4:30 and 5:30.
• If your child’s last name begins with the letters K-Z, please attend Round Up between 5:30 and 6:30.
• If you were unable to arrive at one of the earlier times, you may attend between 6:30 and 7:00.
For Pre-K students: Download the pre-kindergarten enrollment documents at www.mustangps.org/enrollment.aspx. Children must be 4-years-old by Sept. 1, 2017 to qualify for pre-kindergarten. Please bring a completed packet to the round-up. (Forms can also be picked up at any elementary school or the Mustang Administration building.)
For kindergarten students new to MPS: Five-year-old students who DID NOT attend Mustang Public School's pre-kindergarten program last year and who need to enroll for kindergarten may also bring the appropriate enrollment material to the round-up. Please download and complete the kindergarten enrollment forms. (Forms can also be picked up at any elementary school or the Mustang Administration building.)
An enrollment checklist is included in the forms, including which vaccinations a child must have. Site secretaries will be present to enroll the students and nurses will be on hand to review immunization records. Please have proof of all required immunizations to bring to the round-up.
Pre-kindergarten is offered by location as the district has space. More than 300 pre-kindergarten students will attend class at Mustang Education Center. Satellite pre-k classes were opened at Centennial Elementary, Creek Elementary, Trails Elementary and Prairie View Elementary to accommodate additional students. The location and number of satellite classes for 2017-2018 will depend on enrollment and space available. Every child who enrolls for pre-kindergarten will be accepted, but which school they will be assigned to cannot be guaranteed.
Anyone who cannot make it to the Pre-kindergarten/Kindergarten Round-Up is asked to turn in their completed packet at Mustang Education Center, 400 N. Clear Springs Road or at their neighborhood elementary school between March 22 and April 3.
Parents who enroll their children at the Pre-Kindergarten/Kindergarten Round-up will be notified which school their child will attend by a phone call or letter before May 25, 2017.
