Notice on non-credible threat at MHS

Hello! Wanted to keep everyone Informed: 

At approximately 11 a.m. today, Dec. 13, a threat that we do not believe has any credibility was found on a wall in a girl's bathroom at Mustang High School. However, in an abundance of caution we treat all threats as if they are serious. Our campus resource officers were notified, and we also immediately began our own investigation, which includes the review of security camera footage to identify the writer. Although this threat has no credibility, we wanted to make you aware of the situation.

Making a threat on a public school can have serious legal and financial consequences for the perpetrator. At the very least, it disrupts the learning environment for the students and consumes staff resources. Besides the possibility of criminal charges, the suspect and his or her family could be liable for repaying law enforcement for the cost incurred during the investigation. The district will impose the strongest penalty within our
jurisdiction on the perpetrator including long-term suspension.

Please take a moment and remind your children that making any threat on a public school, business or other establishment is never a joke. The consequences can have a life-long impact. If you or your child has any information, please share that with the administration at Mustang High School.

Smicklas gives $7,500 to school foundation

Smicklas Chevrolet donated $7,500 to the Mustang Public Schools Foundation last week. Russ Myers, vice president of the MPSF, said the donation will greatly increase the foundation’s ability to provide grants for teachers. 

“The foundation exists to support and enhance what our teachers can do in the classroom,” he said. “This is done primarily through grants given to teachers who have a creative project in mind that goes above and beyond the normal curriculum provided by the district. We cannot say thank you enough to Smicklas Chevrolet for this donation. It will make a difference in the lives of hundreds of students.” 

Grant applications are due by Oct. 31and are available on the foundation’s website. 

Parents should be on the lookout in November for a “Bucks for Broncos” campaign envelope to come home with their student. 

Donations to the Mustang Public Schools Foundation are tax deductible. Anyone who would like to support the foundation can stop by their website to donate as well: https://www.mustangpsfoundation.org
