Cap and Gown Pick Up

In keeping with the current social distancing guidelines, Jostens will be hosting a “Drive-Thru Cap & Gown Delivery” for all Seniors to pick up their caps & gowns at the First Baptist Church in Mustang (located at 928 N. Mustang Rd Mustang, OK 73064). It will be this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (April 9th, 10th, and 11th) from 10:00am to 2:00pm each day. Please do not get out of your vehicles, simply follow the signs/directions once you are there.


If you still have a balance, they ask that you go online to jostens.com or call 1-800-JOSTENS (567-8367). They will not be accepting cash at delivery in order to provide for the safety of all involved.

Distance Learning Plan


Below you will find the link to our content-specific Continuous Learning Plans. These plans have been thoughtfully developed with input/help from district administration, site administration, curriculum coordinators, counselors, teachers, surveys to patrons, and guiding resources provided by the OSDE, and are aligned to our Oklahoma Academic Standards.


  • Grades were frozen as of March 12, 2020.

  • Students grades will remain the same for their Spring semester grade, however in the event that a student and/or parent contact the teacher, they can request a plan for the student to work and to potentially increase their grade.

  • If a student has an F in any class, that teacher will contact the student/parent to let them know of a plan for the student to increase their grade.


Please come back often as new resources will be added. Also, don’t forget to check out your school’s website and social media posts on Facebook and Instagram for messages from teachers and principals, updates, and to stay connected with your learning community!
