HAPPY SUMMER BREAK!


Thank you for a wonderful and productive school year. I can’t thank everyone enough for your continued support and understanding during this very unique year. Special thanks to our PTSO who, as usual, went above and beyond the call of duty to provide whatever was necessary to add to our students’ already rich school experience.


That experience could not occur without the endless energy, skills and devotion of the Riverwood staff. Thanks and well done to an incredible group of professionals.


A final word to Riverwood students: Thank you for all your hard work throughout the school year. I am so honored to be your principal; you make me proud to be a Riverwood Bronco. You keep me laughing and young at heart. I am grateful for your joy, astute insights and amazing talents.

MPS & Updated CDC Quarantine Guidance

Mustang Family,


Recently the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated/changed their guidance concerning COVID-19 quarantines. As a reminder, a quarantine is used to separate someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 and may develop illness away from other people. Quarantines must be followed inside and outside of school to be effective in preventing the spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they have the virus. Below is a summary of this updated guidance and how it will be applied in Mustang Public Schools.

Updated Guidance Summary:

  • A quarantine may end after Day 10 (previously 14) without testing and if no symptoms have been reported during daily monitoring.

  • A quarantine may also end after Day 7 with a negative test if no symptoms were reported during daily monitoring:

    • The test can be a PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction-Based) or rapid (Antigen) test.

    • The test must be administered within 48 hours of the end of quarantine, but no earlier than Day 5;

    • Regardless of a negative test, a quarantine cannot end earlier than after Day 7;

      • Even if a negative result is received on Day 5, do not exit quarantine until after Day 7.

    • Individuals who test out and return on Day 8 must give negative test results to their supervisor/school office before returning to class/work.

    • This option is dependent upon the sufficient availability of testing resources.

    • A positive test will result in an additional 10 day isolation from the date of the positive test;

In both cases, additional criteria (e.g., continued symptom monitoring and masking through Day 14) must be met. Additionally, the newly released guidance requires that when a shortened quarantine is in place, the following also should be in place through 14 days after exposure:

  • Daily symptom monitoring

  • Mitigation strategies, including correctly and consistently wearing a face covering and social distancing.

Lastly, Federal health officials are concerned about the Christmas holiday season, and they also have issued new guidance about traveling. CDC officials recommended people be tested both one to three days before traveling and three to five days after. Even with a negative test, CDC is recommending travelers reduce activities for a week after traveling. Travelers who aren't tested should reduce activities for 10 days, according to the guidance.

Thank you for your continued support as we continue to evaluate new guidance and adjust accordingly to provide the safest possible environment for our schools.

WE HAVE EXCITING NEWS!

ReadyRosie is a simple tool to:

Hear what we are doing in the classroom

Discover activities and games you can play that relate to classroom learning

Have more fun than ever with your child through meaningful interactions!

The best part is that each activity/game is modeled in a 2 minute video so you and your child can watch together and then play the game! You will receive these videos and communication via text message and/ or email.



Parents can register at Readyrosie.com/register and enter our school code. After registering you can choose your child's teacher from a list and they will be able to then choose their child's dropdown menu.
