March 29th - April 16th
This upcoming school year, MPS will be offering both full day and half day Pre-K options.
Here are a few frequently asked questions that will help guide your enrollment process:
Is Pre-K Round-Up Required ?
Yes, Pre-K Round-Up online enrollment is required for all families who wish to be included in the drawing for a spot in a Pre-K class. Open spots will be filled by a random draw of all students who have completed the enrollment process by April 16th at 11:59pm. Incomplete enrollments will NOT be included in the drawing.
How do I enroll my child in Pre-K?
You will need to complete the enrollment process on the dates listed above. Only complete enrollments, including required documents below, will be accepted,
Photo ID from Parent Guardian
Copy of Official Birth Certificate
Copy of Immunization Records
Two Current Proofs of Residency (Water, Gas, or Electric Bill, Realtor’s Contract, Lease Agreement)
If you are not listed on the bill, a residency verification by affidavit may be necessary - see last section of this page.
Complete Enrollment Packet
Students who have submitted completed enrollment packets (with all required documents) will be entered into a drawing to determine placement for the upcoming school year. Spots for full day Pre-K may be limited.
You will be notified by email no later than May 15, 2021.
After I have turned in my child’s packet, what do I need to do?
All of our MPS parents/guardians of elementary aged students (Pre-K through 4th Grade) will need to verify their residency in August. Please watch the MPS website (https://www.mustangps.org) and social media after July 20th for information on this process.
How old does my child need to be for Pre-K?
Students must be 4 years of age on or before September 1, 2021 to be enrolled in Pre-K.
Students who are kindergarten age (5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2021) may be considered for Pre-K enrollment. Pre-K enrollment for 5 year old students (on or before Sept. 1) will require approval under special circumstances. You will be called once your enrollment has been marked complete to discuss your request.
What if my child is attending Pre-K this year? Can they be in the drawing to attend Pre-K again next year?
Our spots for both full day and half day general education Pre-K are limited and will be reserved for those students who are attending MPS Pre-K for the first time.
The drawing will be fair and impartial. Regardless of the date or time the enrollment process was completed, will have an equal opportunity to be selected to attend Pre-K.
Will my child get to attend his/her home school? I have other children that attend school and I need them to be placed together at one elementary school. Unfortunately we are not able to guarantee that your child will be placed at his/her home school. The number of Pre-K spots at each of our schools may be limited due to classroom availability, number of students enrolled, etc.
What should I do if my child isn’t selected for full-day prek?
If your child isn’t selected for one of the full-day Pre-K spots, and you selected half day as the second option, your child will be enrolled for half day Prek @ MEC (Mustang Education Center). Your child’s name will also be placed on the waitlist for your home site for a full-day spot.
If you choose not to accept a half day spot, your child’s name will be placed on the waitlist for your home site for a full-day spot.
What if I need a full-day Pre-K class due to transportation or childcare issues? Unfortunately many families in our community have these same challenges. We are not able to prioritize the needs of all of our families, therefore we will not give priority enrollment to students based on transportation and/or childcare needs.
What if I prefer for my child to attend half-day Pre-K?
We will still offer the option for students to attend half day Pre-K.
Complete the enrollment process.
Indicate on the PreK preference question, that you would like half day AM or PM PreK.
Half day PreK times are:
Can my Pre-K student ride the bus?
We do not provide transportation for Pre-K students.
Will the Bronco Club/After School Program be offered to Pre-K Students?
Yes, Bronco Club will be offered at all of our elementary schools and will be open to Pre-K aged children. Please go to the link below for information: Bronco Club webpage

RESIDENCY VERIFICATION BY AFFIDAVIT
If a parent/guardian does not have two proofs of residency in their name because they live full time and exclusively with another MPS Resident, a Residency Verification by Affidavit may be necessary and will need to be completed. Dates for completing Residency Verification by Affidavit are yet to be determined, however the documentation mentioned below will still be due at the time of enrollment.
The Residency Verification by Affidavit is a sworn affidavit and will be treated as such.
Per State Law: Any person who willfully makes a statement in an affidavit which the person knows to be false shall, upon conviction, be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in the county jail for not more than one (1) year or a fine of not more than Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) or both such fine and imprisonment. Using a false address for school placement may result in the parent being charged tuition based on a prorated cost of $5,500 per year per student. Home visits may be made by MPS Administrators or designee.
Both the parent/guardian and the MPS resident must be present to complete the Residency Verification by Affidavit. The dates for completing the Residency Verification by Affidavit are yet to be determined. The following documents will still need to be provided at the time of enrollment.
Documentation Required by the MPS Resident:
1. Two proofs of residency:
Acceptable proofs include current gas, water, electric bills, warranty deed statement, ad-valorem tax statement, mortgage statement, or lease agreement. Lease agreements MUST list all occupants of residence, including children. If utility billings are not available, the district will accept a statement from the utility company that service has been established. The letter must be on letterhead and signed by an appropriate official. Utility cut-off notices, telephone, internet, cable bills and driver’s licenses will not be accepted as proof of residency. The name on the Residency Verification by Affidavit must match the name on the proofs of residence.
Valid driver’s license or state issued ID card
Documentation Required by the Parent/Legal Guardian:
1. Birth Certificate with the name of the parent that is enrolling the student or guardianship/legal custody documentation if not listed on the birth certificate.
2. Two proofs of residency:
Mail (such as bank statements, medical bills, insurance papers, but not personal letters or junk mail) either addressed to the parent at the address claimed as the residence or forwarded by the United States Postal Service to the address claimed as the residence.
