Mustang Mutual Grand Opening! – Join us at 7:30 on Friday, Sept 30th for our grand opening as we celebrate our 11th year of Mustang Mutual! Be sure to return your account applications to the office or your child’s teacher.

PTO Back-To-School Picnic – Monday, Oct 3rd from 6:00-8:00pm – Please join your neighbors and our Austin team for an evening of fun, food, and community. Our PTO is working hard to put together a great picnic to celebrate a successful back-to-school.

Conference Day / Student Holidays – There is no school on Friday, Oct 7th or Monday, Oct 10th.

National Red Ribbon Week – Oct 24th-28th – We’ll celebrate being drug free with a week of events and celebrations. More info to come…

As you come and participate in any of the events above, you may notice a change in the front office. The district has purchased a new visitor management/check-in system (Raptor) that will replace our current system (Lobby Guard). While it may take some “getting used to,” our new Raptor system will eventually ensure a quicker and smoother visitor check-in process. Here are a few tips to get you started and help the process go as quickly as possible;

At your first visit, you will be required to check-in with the office staff and present your ID. They will scan your ID into the system, and it will be added into the database. In subsequent visits, you will be able to sign-in independently using the kiosk on the front counter.
If your ID does not scan properly, our office staff will continue to assist you individually.
Thank you for your patience as we get accustomed to our new system. You can help speed up the process by having your ID ready each time you visit.
We hope to see you soon at one of our many upcoming events!

Cooper Hilton, Principal
