Enrollment FAQ

What can I use as proof of residency?
 
Acceptable proofs include gas, water, electric bills, warranty deed statement, ad-valorem tax statement, mortgage statement, rental agreements, or a realtor’s or construction contract. However, the intent to build a home does not constitute legal residency. If a home is in the process of construction, and a copy of the construction contract with the local address can be filed with the school system, a resident shall have approximately 45 school days from the date of initial enrollment to establish permanent residence in the home under construction. Telephone, Internet, cablevision bills, checks and drivers’ licenses will not be accepted as proof of residency. See Residency Policy.

Where can I get my child's immunization record?
 
Acceptable immunization documents include a record provided by a licensed physician or a public health authority. These documents must include dates and a signature, or stamp of the physician or health department official. Students may not enroll without complete immunization records or proof that the student is in the process of receiving required immunizations. No exceptions will be made. Exemptions to state immunization law may be granted in accordance with state law and State Department of Health requirements.

What immunizations are required for enrollment?
 
Download a copy of the requirements here: State of Oklahoma School Immunizations.

Where can I get a copy of my child's birth certificate?
 
Certified copies of birth certificates can be obtained from the vital records division in the state where the child was born. For a child born in Oklahoma, visit the Vital Records Service Room at the Oklahoma State Department of Health, 1000 NE 10th St., Oklahoma City. The office is open Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Call 405-271-4040 for more information, or for instructions on obtaining a birth certificate by mail. For a child born outside of Oklahoma, the National Center for Health Statistics provides a list of Vital Record agencies here.

What is a withdrawal form?
 
Students entering Kindergarten through 12th grade need to bring a withdrawal form from the last school they attended showing the school’s name and address for a record request.

What are examples of legal papers?
 
This includes custody, guardianship, adoption, name change, foster care placement, protective orders, etc.

Where can I get the other required documents/information?

Arrival & Dismissal Reminders

ARRIVAL & DISMISSAL
At Riverwood, SAFETY IS OUR #1 PRIORITY! We have nearly 760 students who go home each afternoon several different ways (bus riders, car riders, daycare, etc.). Our main goal is to keep each child safe by making sure they are dismissed per their parent’s instructions to a location with appropriate supervision.

In order to allow us to continue to support each parent’s dismissal plan, please continue to uphold the following arrival & dismissal-related procedures:

ALL CAR RIDER TRAFFIC WILL ENTER RIVERWOOD FROM THE WEST ON 44TH.

ARRIVAL REMINDERS:

1)CAR RIDER TRAFFIC - Please enter Riverwood Campus from the west on 44th (no left turns).
2)Please refrain from blocking driveways (Riverwood, Central, Neighborhoods, etc). Thank you for your help and understanding in this matter.
3)Please do not leave your car unattended in the car rider line.
4)Refrain from parking and allowing students to walk across the parking lot.
5)Follow the correct path and wait in line to drop students off.
6)Students MUST exit the vehicle on the RIGHT SIDE ONLY for safety purpose
7)As you enter the school driveway, we ask that you please have your son/daughter ready for release, pull up as close as possible to the car in front of you in the car rider line.
8)Please refrain from using cell phones and other distractions that may take away your attention from being observant. This will allow us to get more cars into the driveway and a steady flow of traffic.
9)As you leave the school driveway, please be careful and cautious of traffic on the connecting streets



Dismissal Reminders
1)CAR RIDER TRAFFIC - Please enter Riverwood Campus from the west on 44th (no left turns).
2)Please pull as far right in the car rider lane (and on the shoulder) to allow traffic to pass (if needed).
3)Please refrain from blocking driveways (Riverwood, Central, Neighborhoods, etc). Thank you for your help and understanding in this matter.
4)Please allow our buses to enter and exit the campus.
5)Please do not leave your car unattended in the car rider line.
6)Please refrain from using cell phones and other distractions that may take away your attention from being observant. This will allow us to get more cars into the driveway, more students released, and a steady flow of traffic.
7)As you leave the school driveway, please be careful and cautious of traffic on the connecting streets.
8)Follow dismissal procedures - Safe ID card hung on the rearview mirror for easy and quick reference.
9)Refrain from getting out of your vehicle.



Please be patient and courteous as both parents and students learn the procedures. The process does move quicker as everyone learns and follows the procedures.



If your child needs to go home a different way than usual, contact the Riverwood Office. If a need arises throughout the day for you to change your student's dismissal plan, call the school office by 1:30. It takes a considerable amount of time to dismiss our entire student body and the last hour of the school day is by far our busiest time. The later we get the information, the greater the likelihood a miscommunication could occur. Again, our students' safety is our #1 priority - please help us by being as prepared as possible.



Thank you for the continued understanding and patience during arrival and dismissal.


Mustang Public School District - Student Conduct on Buses
Parents and Guardians,

Please take a few minutes to review expectations regarding student conduct on buses. In order to provide safe transportation to and from school, it is very important that all students adhere to the following expectations.


STUDENT CONDUCT ON BUSES

Riding a school bus is a privilege and students must maintain safe and respectful conduct to ensure safe travel to and from school. Student safety is our main priority and rules that are enforced at school also apply on the bus. Our bus drivers have the same authority over pupils while riding buses as the teachers have while in school.


The following rules and regulations shall govern the conduct of school bus passengers:
     -Students must be respectful of the driver and other passengers at all times
     -All students must stay in their seats from the time they load the bus to the time they exit the bus
     -Students must keep hands and feet to themselves
     -Students must avoid tampering with the windows or the emergency door of the bus unless instructed by the driver to do so 

Disruptive behaviors, which potentially jeopardize the safety of all passengers, will not be tolerated. The following are some examples of disruptive behaviors which may result in the loss of bus riding privileges:
     -Fighting, shouting, profanity, horseplay, using tobacco or electronic cigarettes, extending any part of the body through an open window, throwing objects, refusing to obey the bus driver, *vandalism

The following items will not be permitted on the bus:
     -Balloons
     -Glass containers
     -Snacks and drinks (must stay in the student’s backpack)
