Mustang Round-Up News
October 12, 2022
Thank you to everyone who joined us for Parent/Teacher Conferences. We wanted to remind you that this past week students received their school pictures and their Aimsweb Benchmark scores. Please ask your child to clean out any handouts we have sent home from their backpacks.
We hope you have a wonderful Fall Break and we will see you on Tuesday. My family is headed out to enjoy the fall weather with some kayaking and fishing.
We are Cheyenne!
We are Mustangs!

Digital Hall Pass System
Beginning after Fall Break, Cheyenne is using the digital hall pass system, SmartPass. SmartPass is a digital hall pass system that replaces traditional hall passes such as sign-out sheets, wooden blocks, passbooks, and more.... It also provides administrators an accounting of which students are outside of the classroom during the school day. In the event of an emergency such as fire, severe weather, or building issues, administrators have real-time access to this critical information. Overall, the pass history of a student will lead to more effective and informative details of their whereabouts, as well as ensuring students are utilizing passes for legitimate reasons.

Student IDs Required to Be Worn Each Day
Students are required to wear their student ID each and every day. All students have received their initial ID for the year. Students that do not have their ID are expected to print a sticker to wear for the day. This should only be used in emergency situations. Students who have printed too many stickers will be expected to serve lunch detention and to purchase another ID for $5.
This is one of the district's many safe guards for our schools. IDs provide a quick glance of students that belong to our school, their grade level, and which parts of the building they should be in during the day.
Dress Code Reminders
The Edmond Public Schools Board of Education dress code policy. For reference - it is available by clicking here.
Please be sure your child is dressed according to the diagram labled appropriate. We will address dress code when students violate the policy. This could mean students putting on clothing we have in our clothing collection to meet the dress code. The goal is to return to class as soon as possible while meeting the dress code expectations.
Cheyenne and North Athletic Events
Our Mustangs have been exhibiting lots of school spirit over the past few weeks as they cheer on our Mustangs and Edmond North Huskies!
While we never want to dampen the enthusiasm of our students, please keep in mind a few key points:
- Students should always be on their best behavior while attending home and away games.
- Students should remain in the stands unless they need to access the concession stand or restrooms.
- Win or lose, students should cheer on our team without mocking or being disrespectful to the other team.
- Please have a pick up plan for your students if you drop them off at an event. Games, especially volleyball and softball, often end sooner than you might imagine, and we don't want students hanging out after a game is finished.
- Middle school athletic passes are different than high school student passes. Make sure if you are purchasing online tickets, that you are purchasing the correct pass. If given the option, enter your students ID (found on the home screen of the parent portal) to unlock other pricing options.
- Mrs. Peeler, the principal at North, sent an email to families regarding expectations at North games including how to purchase tickets. Please see the link below for more details.

DROPPING OFF ITEMS
We ask that you check with your student before they walk out the door and make sure they are prepared for the day. This includes having their, Chromebook, ID and Lunch. If your student does forget their lunch or something they need for school, we have a cart in our front lobby with grade levels. This will be rolled back into the common area for the students to pick up their items during passing. Please drop off LUNCHES or SCHOOL SUPPLIES ONLY.
If you are dropping off an instrument or athletic equipment we will place this by the back office door for them to come up and get during their passing or after school. Please make arrangements with your student regarding these items and where to retrieve them.
