Student Drop Off and Pick Up

Please See the picture below to help get a feel for the traffic flow for student drop off and pick up. Please note that students should never cross the parking lot and should always use the crosswalks on the East and West sides of the lot when making their way North of the school.


It is also important to note that no parents should line up on the West side of the building to pick up students in the afternoon.


The Mustang Police Department will soon help assist in reinforcing safe drop off and exit procedures for students.
