MPS 2021 BOND

Mustang Families,

As many of you know, the MPS School Board adopted a resolution in early January calling for a $10.9 million Bond Issue to be added to the April 6, 2021 election. We have been hard at work creating content for our MPS 2021 Bond election webpage (which can be accessed via this link directly: http://bit.ly/MPS2021Bond) and wanted to share these resources with you. Specifically, we just added a video detailing what is included, and will soon be adding another video detailing why this Bond election is being brought to you. We have enjoyed tremendous community support, and encourage everyone to get out and vote on April 6, 2021. We will update you as we add more content and expect a reminder on 4/6/21 to go vote! If you have questions, comments, or concerns about this Bond, please email them to [email protected]

Also, if you don’t already, you should also follow the Mustang PS Operations and Mustang Schools Facebook Pages for updates on this and many other topics. Additionally, the MPS Twitter account posts frequently about ongoings throughout the district, as does the MPS Instagram account.

As always we thank you for your continued support, and hope everyone has a safe/restful weekend!

HELP US STOP THE SPREAD!

If you or someone in your family is going for a Covid test or has gone for a Covid test and results are pending, EVERYONE needs to stay home until results are received. Please do not send students to school or come to work while a family member is awaiting test results. Help us Stop the Spread!

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.
